Cross-border trade and transactions

There are major differences depending on whether goods flow within the European Union (EU) borders or across the EU borders. All EU countries have based their legislation concerning VAT on a common VAT Directive. After all, the country borders within the EU were removed, together with all customs formalities. Companies established in the EU doing business with companies in other EU countries mostly deal with similar rules and guidelines. There are much bigger differences for trading between the Netherlands and a country outside the EU. Anticipating such differences in due time is of key importance. However, even regarding trade between EU countries, a foreign business must take certain issues into account when receiving goods from or delivering goods to the Netherlands.
