What is Indirect Representation?
In case of indirect representation, a customs agent lodges a declaration in his or her own name but on behalf of a stakeholder. A customs agent who acts as an indirect representative is the declarant and, as such, responsible for the content of the declaration.
Article 18 and article 19 of the UCC (Union Customs Code) stipulates the following: Indirect representation is applied when you do not have a VAT Registration number in the country where the customs formalities are performed. In such way the customers broker can issue the customs declaration with its own number and on your behalf (you are listed on the customs declaration). With indirect representation scheme both customs broker and represented company are liable for the customs declaration. A Power Of Attorney (POA) must be granted to the customs broker.
