How does a Dutch VAT number help me when I don't sell in Netherlands?

Before you can get your goods to your EU customers, you need to get them into the EU. And there are very good reasons to use the Netherlands as your EU import hub.

The Article 23 License explained

Imports into the EU are subject to import VAT. However, member states have the discretion to allow import VAT deferments. It’s a benefit that Dutch authorities extend to traders, through a mechanism known as Article 23. It’s one of several factors that makes the Netherlands such an attractive import destination.
