How does import to EU then reship within EU works?
Asked by Tonyko |
Original label is covered with label telling sender is from: Germany, Belgium, Lithuania.
And that label is real, someone imported it to one, then reshipped to another EU country.
I wonder how that works? The parcel from China basically becomes a parcel from within EU.
Parcels within EU are in customs union, thus final recepient is no longer importer to EU.
You may get the answer from the following articles:
If sender uses IOSS, then goods can be freely imported to transit EU country to later be shipped to destination EU country, with new label covering old label.
However, if no IOSS is used, transit EU country generates new label, it covers old label and must be customs declaration signed by sender from origin country.
If that's so, they have right to later ask buyer to cover that VAT; or if IOSS is used and they are aware of it, they merely present that to customs and all is cleared.
