Imports to the Canary Islands
Best Logistics, operates its own weekly import service from several ports to Tenerife and Las Palmas, and from anywhere in the world.
The fact that the Canary Islands are an outermost region of the European Union means that its tax and tax system is different from the rest of the countries that make it up. This system is called the Canarian Special Regime and, therefore, the importation of products within it, implies the taxation of specific taxes.
These taxes are:
- Goods of community origin (including Spain).
- A.I.E.M (Arbitration on Imports and Deliveries of Goods in the Canary Islands).
- Canarian Indirect General Tax (better known by its initials, IGIC). Its operation is identical to VAT (VAT in English) and therefore is compensated with the IGIC that must be passed on to the buyer.
- Goods of extra Community origin.
- In addition to the taxes and fees mentioned above (AIEM and IGIC), in the case that the goods was of extra-community origin, the tariffs that the European Union would mark for that merchandise would also be applied to it if imported by any other Community Customs.
