Toll manufacturing activities in the CEE/SEE region



15.00 - 16.30 Uhr


Online, Cisco Webex Events

What the principal and the manufacturer shall consider from VAT and customs point of view
Many international companies from Central Europe use “extended workbenches” in the CEE/SEE region for outsourcing their manufacturing activities. In this context, the foreign principal typically sends raw-materials from other EU or non-EU countries to the target CEE/SEE country. Following the manufacturing process, finished goods shall be transported back to the principial or directly to his customers.
There are numerous reasons for this process, including well-trained skilled workers in the manufacturing countries, lower wages and special VAT, customs and special rules for foreign investments.
In our webinar, we will address complex VAT and customs regulations which should be considered in these cases. Local experts from our offices in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia and Serbia will give you practical insights about the situation in their countries.
