We have significant orders from a large company based in Turkey. They ask us to ship to their warehouse in Germany where the stock is held until called off by the Turkish factory. I’m concerned we are not carrying out the shipment correctly for customs and VAT purposes. We send the goods to Germany at our cost as an intra-EU movement but we don’t declare it on the Intrastat return as it is going on to Turkey. The export is declared out of the Germany warehouse against our UK EORI and an ATR Movement Certificate is raised in Germany in our name and UK address. Our customers have advised us that they are VAT registered in Germany but we aren’t sure of the significance of this. We receive a copy of the German export declaration to keep as evidence that the goods have left the EU. Is this ok?
