Changes in VAT on import
VAT declarations must be made on own initiative for import to the Tax Administration from 1 January 2018.
Companies registered as VAT liable must pay and report VAT on imported goods on their own initiative to the Tax Administration as of January 1, 2018.
The customer must initially calculate the tax base and the amount of the tax for the purposes of reporting and paying the value added tax. The tax base and amount have their own fields in VAT report. The customs value will only be confirmed by the Finnish customs duty.
We recommend that our customers get acquainted with the Tax Administration’s instructions and pay particular attention to how the VAT declarator is provided with sufficient information for tax returns.
We offer a service of monthly VAT breakdown of import volumes (additional service price 30 € / month). VAT breakdown per import is also available. If you want an additional service, contact your familiar Customs Broker at Ahola Transport.
