How does invoicing and export documentation work?

Question

I am buying goods from Europe and send them to North Africa, how does the invoicing system work? ie; the seller will invoice me and i will invoice my clients what about the export documentation side how does it work? Would all documents be provided by the seller to my client on my name or still have all their details?

Looking forward for your advise.

JB

Hi JB
there are a number of ways of doing this.
If you are simply doing “triangular invoicing” you will still need to either have resources doing the export documentation or spend money on somebody else doing it for you.
How trustworthy are you that the buyer will go straight to the original source of the goods.
I was with a client this week discussing this very same issue.

This could be seen as an export from the relevant EU Member State and each country has different export documentation requirements. You though could be declared as the exporter of record if you have an EORI with HMRC, that would need be included in customs declaration completed in another EU MS country.
