+ 0 Votes Export Adminstrator TheChas 5 years ago This is really a question for your company export administrator or legal team. There are a large number of issues here. Many of which depend on the specifics of the legal language of your companies. Perhaps an even bigger question, is who are you working with for the export licensing? If you are a small business that does not have an export administrator, or in house legal consul, it may be cheaper to have the sister company order the server themselves and then fly over and setup the system after it arrives. Even the software you install on the server may require an export license. You have too much risk and too much at stake to rely on advice from a peer forum. Chas + 0 Votes Read more on it here.

Peconet Tietokoneet-217038187993258194678069903632 5 years ago You will be charged with VAT on the machine (even if it is for yourself, you will most probably have to pay customs). If you are doing any kind of work on this computer, hardware/software or both and then shipping it over then you will be liable for the VAT, unless you pass the VAT on to the Sister company. Like TheChas said it would be easier for you if the sister company bought it and then you go over there to fiddle around with it, cheaper to for you. Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
