New requirement for providing proof of shipment for goods from Germany

10 January 2012

The German Government has approved changes concerning the requirement for providing proof of shipment on Intra-Community supplies. From 1 January 2012 businesses that move goods from Germany for Intra-EU trade will have to obtain confirmation from their customers of the exact date of the arrival of the goods at the place of destination. The German Finance Ministry is expected to publish, in due course, a notice giving full details of the proposed changes and what form this evidence will take.
