SERVICES

Do you live outside the EU and want to buy a vehicle in Germany? We will gladly help you. This is equally relevant for private customers as well as companies. International business currently makes up 40 percent of our overall business. With a rising tendency. Our experience in this field is correspondingly high.

 

Export declaration, Export Accompanying Document

If you have purchased the vehicle from us at net price, without the German VAT of currently 19 percent, and want to transport or dispatch the car to your home country, which is outside the EU, you will definitely need an export declaration. This must be carried out electronically using the IT system ATLAS-Ausfuhr.

However, the export declaration is just the first step. For the customs office of export to release the vehicle for export, the vehicle must be physically presented to the customs office of export. Only after the presentation, the customs office of export will release the vehicle for export, which will be documented with the Export Accompanying Document (EAD). If you want to export the vehicle properly from the EU area, you will definitely need the EAD.

All this sounds complex, and unfortunately it is. In return for a small compensation, we will carry out these customs formalities. When handing over the vehicle we will also provide you or the transportation company commissioned by you with the Export Accompanying Document (EAD) required for export.

Do you have any additional questions on the Export Accompanying Document? Please get in touch with us! We will gladly help you.

 

Export plates

If the vehicle is to be exported from the EU area with its own propulsion, you need an export plate before the export is declared. But even for exports, where the vehicle leaves the EU area on the trailer of a truck, for example, we require our customers to apply for an export plate. This is related to the vehicle’s registration status and reduces the proof of export for VAT purposes to the exit results message.

The export plates are valid for 15 or 30 days. The registration usually is done on us and requires a liability insurance that covers the registration period. In return for a small compensation, we will provide you with an export license plate as well as the necessary liability insurance from one source. You don’t have to worry about anything!

For certain third countries, an EUR1 or T2L could also be of interest. Please get in touch with us! We will gladly assist you.

EUR.1

If your home country, which is outside the EU, has a preferential agreement with the EU, you can benefit from a tariff concession in your home country. Such agreements assume, among other things, that the preferential origin of the goods supplied is in the EU (preference of origin). Proof of preference, the EUR.1 is considered as one, documents that these conditions have been met.

In order for the customs office of export to issue an EUR.1, it must be proved by means of a supplier’s declaration that the vehicle is a product that originates in the EU. As a general rule, only the vehicle manufacturer can provide this proof. Please be aware that German manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen and Audi have stopped issuing supplier’s declarations a while ago. They argued that the administrative expenses were too high.

Nevertheless, there are still a number of manufacturers, such as Jaguar Land Rover, who issue supplier’s declarations for EU products upon request. If the manufacturer is able to issue a supplier’s declaration, an EUR.1 can be requested from the customs office of export.

Do you need an EUR.1? As part of the export declaration, we also gladly handle the obtainment of an EUR.1 without asking for an additional charge. Please get in touch with us! We will gladly help you.

 

T2L

When the goods are transported to or from territories that are not part of the fiscal territory of the EU (e.g. San Marino, Andorra), proof of the Community nature of the goods can be provided by presenting a T2L dispatch note. Therefore, a T2L is another proof of preference.

However, in contrast to EUR.1, the customs authority does not require a supplier’s declaration from the manufacturer to confirm the validity of the T2L form. Moreover, it can also be issued subsequently, after the export has taken place.

Do you need a T2L? As part of the export declaration, we also gladly handle the issuing of a T2L without asking for an additional charge. Please get in touch with us! We will gladly help you.
