Hello Everyone

Just need help l'm an Export Manager here in Paarl South Africa my qn is.

We have been congnsining goods from Europe to SA for a while now and we have been using a Proforma invoice. The problem comes now, you can not claim import VAT on a proforma so they requested me to use a commercial invoice. l cant use a proforma invoice as it inflates our assets in the books according to the accountant. We pay for these artworks after sale. Please help, which shipping documentation should l use so that l dont enter the shipment into the books. Take note that l can clear goods using a proforma but l cant claim import VAT. l cant use a commercial invoice as it inflates our assets. Tried to get hold of customs but they are not giving me a clear answer to this please help
