Customs clearance

Importing goods? Our team will handle the customs clearance

Importing goods involves a great deal. If you import by air, sea or road from outside the European Union, customs clearance is a significant issue. Customs checks whether the goods are allowed to enter the Netherlands and decides how much you have to pay in VAT and import duties. If there are a lot of goods, this is a time-consuming task. The TFF team will gladly take care of the stress and administrative complexity involved in customs clearance for you.

Export without worry

If you are going to export goods, you can count on our help as well. We take over the administrative tasks related to transfer and clearance. We make the final costs transparent on the collective invoice. It is very useful.

Customs costs

Customs checks whether you have to pay VAT and import duties and determines how much. These amounts depend on two things: the country of origin and the type of product. You can always see the costs clearly on our useful collective invoice. Here are some examples:
  • Customs clearance fees
  • Import duties
  • Value-added tax (VAT)
  • Excise tax
If you want to know what import duty rate your products are subject to, take a look at the Dutch customs database or the Market Access Database of the European Union.

The right documents for customs clearance

We are happy to offer you personal advice on importing and exporting goods. You can also authorise us as a tax representative. You do not have to pay the VAT directly at customs, only along with the periodic VAT declaration. Which documents do you need during customs clearance?
  • A waybill, AWB or BL;
  • commercial invoice;
  • certificate of origin;
  • ATR form or invoice declaration.
