  • RE: VAT impact - Duplicated declaration on import

    Unfortunately, this was discovered too late when the invoice was raised by the forwarder for the VAT prepaid. The forwarder mentions that we could use the form C79 to ask the reimbursement of the VAT Overpayment. Is that a possibility? Thanks, Best regards, 
  • VAT impact - Duplicated declaration on import

    Good evening, I come to you with an on going problem that we have with a forward related to a shipment imported from France. They have shipped goods to the UK (Incoterm CPT - UK Location). - Our supplier has appointed the forwarder to do their Export custom declaration. - Our customs agent has processed the import declaration on our behalf as usual. However, the forwarder has also done the Import declaration on our behalf by error. They have never been instructed to do it on our behalf... They prepaid the Import VAT on our behalf and is invoicing it to us. On our side, the Import VAT has been processed as usual through the Postponed VAT scheme. There is a duplicated entry for the VAT on this shipment. Can we reclaim the VAT paid on our behalf somehow to allow us to settle the invoice of the forwarder? This is going back to 2021.Can you please advise? Thank you, Best regards,
