What are cross trade carriages?

How it all happens

Company B (intermediary) is the owner of the transaction, which is the buyer for company A and the seller to company C. The broker acts on his own behalf and acquires the goods, otherwise he would act under the International Commercial Brokerage Agreement and would not have the obligation to calculate VAT.

The following types of Cross trade can currently be carried out:

Triangular operations within the EU: between the countries of the European Union.
Mixed triangular (outside the Community) operations: the manufacturer or buyer is not part of the EU, but the remaining persons involved in a triangular foreign trade operation do so.
