VAT reporting on import

VAT reporting on import to the Finnish Tax Administration in 2018

Starting from Jan 1st 2018 VAT-registered companies in Finland no longer declare VAT in the customs declaration at the time  of import. In the future VAT is determined in the same way as for domestic VAT. The importer, registered for VAT in Finland, must submit a VAT return on their own initiative and pay it, in accordance with the tax period that the company has.

Individuals and organizations not registered in the VAT register must pay duties and taxes to Finnish Customs in connection with the import of goods as before
