What is fiscal representation? Fiscal representation is a service that we can offer to foreign companies when importing goods in the Netherlands. Verhoex Douane Service will then fiscally represent the foreign company and make use of the VAT reversed-charge. The VAT will be reversed-charged to the foreign company through the VAT return. This way the foreign company does not have to pay any VAT when importing goods in the Netherlands.
