Customs clearance of export goods

If you shall export goods from the Netherlands you must always declare the goods to Dutch Customs
You can not send goods from the Netherlands to outside of the EU before Dutch Customs has given its permission. As an exporter you are required to notify the Dutch authorities via a customs clearance - also called a declaration. Dutch Customs controls the declaration via a customs clearance, then you can send the goods out of the country. 
Here you will find more detailed information about customs clearance of exports.

The main areas for export duty:

  • High goods’ value
    - Goods’ value over €: 
  • Temporary exportation
    - For example for goods that are exported for repair and shall be returned to the Netherlands
  • Re-exportation from the Netherlands
    - Goods which have been temporarily customs cleared into the Netherlands
