VAT Exempt

If you do not import European goods in the free circulation of the European Union, you must pay customs duties. Customs duties are levies in the form of import duties, excise duties, agricultural levy, anti-dumping and VAT. VAT on import may limit your liquidity. In the Netherlands you can change the VAT on import in 2 ways:

  • If you have a Dutch entity, you can apply for a deduction rule with the Dutch Tax Authorities, in accordance with Section 23 of the Turnover Tax Act.
  • As a non-Dutch entity you can be represented by a tax representative.

We can be of service in both cases! If you would like more information about this subject, please contact us via the application form or contact us directly by telephone. We are happy to serve you!
