Hello, our carrier declared the wrong importer on some of our entry documents (another company instead of us): what can be the consequences for us in case of control? Given that no duties were due and corresponding VAT was paid by us (i.e the correct importer). Thank you for your support

Hi Sophie B I suggest that you make a request to the carrier to change the importer details to show the correct importer EORI details. If you are VAT registered although you have paid the VAT you will not be entitled to recover this on your VAT return as the details of the import will show on the other parties C79.
