DDA - Warehousing other than customs warehousing

Main utilities offered by this regime

  1. Non-EU goods: only if they are previously released for free circulation, they are subject to customs duties and VAT, if any, but exempt from VAT under art. 65 LIVA.
  2. General Community goods: Community goods may be linked by virtue of domestic or intra-Community transactions, which are exempt from VAT (arts. 24 and 26 LIVA).
  3. Goods subject to IIEE: as long as they are under a suspensive regime, they are under the DDA regime.
  4. Goods stored in a DDA may be subject to the operations allowed in a customs warehouse, with the same requirements and conditions.

Who is interested in applying for a warehouse other than a bonded warehouse?

  • Manufacturers who are not final exporters.
