If you want to transport goods under customs supervision through the European Union, you must submit a transit declaration. The result will be one of two documents:

T1 – is necessary for goods originating from outside the European Union that have not been put into free circulation (cleared at import) yet. It also allows goods from outside the EU to be transported within the EU, even if they are first stored in a customs warehouse.

T2 – is necessary for the transport of goods in free circulation within the EU through or to countries that are not Member States (such as Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway, Macedonia and Turkey)

IMPORTANT! We can provide transit services (T1, T2) because we have a customs guarantee. It is required to cover the customs debt while the goods are in transit.

For non-EU companies, fiscal representation in the Netherlands is mandatory. This means that if your company is located outside the EU and you do not have a physical presence in the EU, you will need to appoint a tax representative to comply with Dutch tax rules. A tax representative is a person or entity responsible for fulfilling your tax obligations in the Netherlands.

By working with us, we will provide your company with full VAT administration and provide tax returns.

IMPORTANT! When importing goods using a fiscal representative, you do not have to pay VAT when you perform customs clearance in the Netherlands.

How to import into the UE

To import goods from outside the EU, an EORI number is required.

The next step is to collect all relevant documents including:

– power of attorney for a customs agent (PoA)
– commercial invoice
– packing list
– all necessary certificates and licenses

After customs clearance, you must pay customs duties and VAT. The goods can then be placed on the market.

How to export from the UE

To export goods outside the European Union, you must undergo import customs clearance in one of the Community countries. For this purpose, you need to collect specific documents:

– power of attorney for a customs agent (PoA)
– commercial invoice
– packing list
– all necessary certificates and licenses

After clearance, you will need a document confirming the export of goods outside the EU IE-599, which enables the application of a zero VAT rate in exports.

EORI number

An EORI number is necessary for every company that deals in or is related to international trade.

EORI, or more precisely Economic Operator Registration and Identification, is the registration and identification number of every entrepreneur who trades with the European Union. It consists of the country code where the company or person is registered and a maximum of 15 digits.

It is needed for all export and import procedures.
