Imports of services

Import of services takes place when a resident of Estonia purchases services from a non-resident, incl. from an economic unit that belongs to the same enterprise group but is located abroad. For providing services, it is not necessary to cross country borders, i.e. services can be provided in Estonia or abroad.
