Abolition of Hamburg's Freeport as per 2013

Abolition of Hamburg’s Freeport as per 2013

At the start of 2013, Hamburg’s free zone will be abolished. This is associated with changes under customs and VAT law which will require mandatory process adjustments from the companies doing business there. In the past, the Freeport was not deemed to be part of Germany’s national territory and could be used for cross-border trade without attracting customs duties and turnover tax on imports.

Due to its location outside the Freeport, Emons Air & Sea in Hamburg has been actively facing this reality for years now.
