Taxation of goods

Here we give an overview of the place of supply of goods and the taxation of domestic transactions and acts, export and import of goods, and intra-Community supply and acquisition. Under the VAT Act, there are also a number of differences in the taxation of supply of goods, e.g. the supply of goods to be installed or assembled, new means of transport, etc. are taxed differently from the supply of other goods.

Transport of assets used for business purposes to another Member State

Intra-Community acquisitions of goods also includes the transport of assets used for business purposes from one Member State to another Member State for business purposes there.

If a company engaged in business in another Member State decides to engage in business in Estonia as well and delivers the inventory used for that purpose to Estonia, the goods included in the inventory will be taxed in Estonia as the intra-Community acquisition of goods. A company may be obliged to register for VAT in Estonia.
