Abstract
In this reply, we emphasize that the goal of our original paper was to show that a straightforward application of standard multipole theory does not lead to unphysical results as claimed by Raab and de Lange. We stress once more that an origin shift for calculating the multipoles must be accompanied by a relocation of these multipoles, which compensates the effects of the origin dependence of the multipoles. We point out that the position of the macroscopic boundary is a relevant parameter. We agree that the transformation proposed by Raab and de Lange could still be useful supposing it only affects the phase of the reflected/trasmitted waves. We dispute that the transformation as derived by Raab and de Lange is unique.
