Invoice statement EUR.1

When exporting outside the EU, the foreign customer can often benefit from an import advantage if the vehicle is manufactured in the EU. This is because the EU has concluded trade agreements with a number of countries outside the EU. With an Invoice Statement EUR.1 you help your customer to take advantage of the import advantage.


Import advantage with an invoice statement EUR.1

In order to benefit from the import advantage, it must be demonstrated that the vehicle has been manufactured in the European Union. This can be done with the so-called EUR.1 movement certificate. The certificate must be completed and stamped by the Chamber of Commerce. VWE has a special Customs permit and therefore issues the Invoice Statement EUR.1, without a visit to the Chamber of Commerce and Customs being necessary. This saves you and your customer time and money. An Invoice Statement EUR.1 can be issued for passenger vehicles, light commercial vehicles, trucks and coaches.
