A general fiscal representative acts on behalf of a foreign company with respect to all its transactions of goods for which Slovene VAT is due (intra-Community acquisitions, imports, local acquisitions, intra-Community supplies, local supplies and exports from EU). In practice the foreign company will receive its own Slovene VAT number and gain all benefits and obligations as Slovene taxpayer.
