The Complexities of Importing into Germany

Germany is a compliance-heavy country with strict rules and regulations in place. Housing several large HQ’s and data centers for both the Tech and Medical fields, Germany boasts the highest GPD in Europe. 

Germany’s Tech sector is also considered to be in the top 20 worldwide and one of the tops in Europe. This makes it a popular destination for both the import and export of technology equipment. 

Despite this, exporting out of Germany is particularly complex. This is especially true if you are looking to use a 3rd as an exporter. While this may not have been necessary previously, the changes in the definition of exporter have forced many non-EU companies to use 3rd parties.
