Are you planning to purchase goods in a third country, or have you already done so? Then make sure that you’re well prepared, as there are going to be a lot of questions that need to be answered. It’s therefore important that everything is clear to you.

Matters of importance

Have you thought about who’ll to pay the transport costs? Because that’s step one. You’ll also need to know whether the goods are cleared when they’re delivered to you, or whether this is something you have to arrange yourself. Things like this are determined in the delivery conditions that are drawn up. But if you think that’s the only matter that needs to be taken into account, you’re wrong. There’s more.

Like, whether the goods are subject to inspection. And whether you have the right commodity code. The commodity code is needed to determine the correct amount of import duties.

DIY or outsource?

Of course, you can opt to self-file and keep everything in-house, but wouldn’t it be much easier to work with a customs broker who has all the expertise?

We start immediately after receiving the invoice for the goods you would like to import. Whether these commodities arrive at the port of Rotterdam, Antwerp or enter the country over the motorway is of no importance in the current electronic era. From our office at the Dutch-Belgian border, we can take care of everything as if we were at your location.

Even if your imports are currently being cleared by a different customs agent, we can check if this is done correctly and in line with the market.
