Its economy relies on the import of most basic products, among which energy and chemical products used for manufacturing purposes. The Principality has a common customs union with Switzerland and it is also part of the European Economic Area (EEA) which facilitates imports and exports.

Import and export procedures in Liechtenstein

Due to the fact that the Principality is not an EU member state, the import and export procedures Liechtenstein companies must comply with are different. Companies importing and exporting products into, respectively from Liechtenstein, must fulfill several labeling regulations. The products must be accompanied by documents showing their provenience, such as invoices and shipping documents. Also, companies involved in trading activities must register for VAT in Liechtenstein. The VAT number will also serve as an EORI number for companies trading with companies in EU countries.
