You are importing goods for your business as an independent and need to pay hefty import costs? Don’t worry, import costs are generally entirely deductible (at least if the good you purchase is entirely for your professional activity).
How can I deduct import costs as an independent?
Import costs are generally composed of 2 elements: administrative fees, generally relative to the costs of logistics to deliver your import good and VAT, generally paid at the custom.
Administrative fees are deductible and should typically have VAT attached to them. If you are subject to VAT, you recover the VAT
VAT paid at customs is recoverable if you are subject to VAT.
