Custom clearance

Let us help you with your custom clearance

Customs’ processes to get an item in or out of the country can be time-consuming.

The most common customs procedure is called “ordinary import or export“ and applies to purchases and sales of goods. Other types may for example be:

  • Temporary import or export
    Goods imported of exported for temporary use – repair, processing, etc.

  • Re-importation or re-exportation
    Goods re-imported or re-exported after temporary importation or exportation.

As an importer you are required to report to the Dutch authorities all the goods you bring into the country. Here you can find more information about customs clearance of imports. Changed to a longer link, so it is better optimized for the blind - think it also gives a higher QS in search engines.

If you shall export goods from the Netherlands you must always declare the goods to Dutch Customs. As an exporter, you must perform a customs clearance/declaration. Here you can find more information about customs clearance of exports.

Do you need customs credit? 

Customs credit is a credit Dutch Customs grants to companies to simplify payment of duty and taxes. With customs credit you can postpone payment of duty on imports.
We recommend you use customs credit for quick and simple customs clearance of goods.
