There are new regulations with regards to exports into European countries we have to follow. Please see the information below for more details.
GERMANY B2B Specific Information
As a DHL customer who has shipped to Germany recently, we would like to remind you about the importance of including the receiver's EORI number when sending B2B shipments to Germany.
Including the Receiver's EORI number on the Commercial/Pro Forma Invoice will facilitate the prompt clearance of your B2B shipments. This requirement will be mandatory for B2B shipments to Germany from 1 May 2021.
What is happening to European Shipments from 1st July 2021?
What is the EU VAT De Minimis Removal?
From 1 July 2021 the following EU regulatory changes will come into force and impact both BC2 and B2B businesses:
All goods imported to the EU will be subject to VAT. The current VAT exemption for importation of goods up to €22 will be removed.
All shipments imported to the EU will require a formal Customs Declaration. To ensure successful clearance of shipments with Customs Authorities, it is essential that you provide a complete and accurate Commercial/Pro Forma Invoice electronically to DHL Express.
Please note that most shipments valued under €150 are not subject to Customs duties on arrival in the EU. This is separate to VAT and will continue to apply post 1 July 2021.
