Change in French Import Regulations
The French government has decided to change their import system as of January 1, 2015. In most other EU countries, including France, import VAT is due to be paid to customs upon import. However, the new rules mean that France will now have the same import system as Belgium and the Netherlands, where a company can set it up so that the import VAT does not have to be paid out to customs. Instead the company accounts for the VAT in their upcoming VAT return. This will improve a company’s cash flow since no VAT has to be paid out and therefore also does not have to be claimed back at a later point. Please contact our VAT experts for further information.
