Logistics Services Malta
We form part of APLN worldwide network; which is an international network of small and medium-sized independent freight forwarders. This puts us in a position to locate trusted agents overseas and ensure quality service in markets worldwide. We are also members of FIATA and fully qualified IATA cargo agents.
In addition, we can also offer a full freight forwarding service and logistic solutions in Libya through our appointed agents in the country.
Fiscal representation in Malta is an ancillary service suitable for traders established outside of the European Union seeking logistical solutions to export their products competitively to all EU states.
When trading within the EU, entities must comply with VAT obligations. In so doing they may apply for a VAT registration number and choose to administer the various formalities specific to individual EU countries themselves.
Alternatively Salvo Grima can act as a fiscal representative. In return we, on behalf of traders established outside the EU, would ensure compliance to all the administrative processes involved in exporting to the EU. The trader would thereby be saving administrative and other costs related to having to set up office in every EU state.
Essentially consignments of traders established outside the EU can circulate freely within the EU once customs duty is paid in Malta. Through the Onward Supply Relief process this may be done without actually paying Value Added Tax (VAT). This process simply ensures that VAT is merely accounted for in accordance with Maltese VAT legislation.
Having achieved free circulation (C status), consignments originating from outside the EU but stored within our facilities at the Malta Freeport are consequently strategically placed to compete with similar products originating within the EU.
