If you import or export goods, these goods must be declared to customs. The making of a customs declaration is the act by which a company or person expresses the intention to place goods under a certain customs procedure.
Import duties and export duties
This operation must take place in the prescribed form, in the prescribed manner. The declarant provides data to customs. This data is used to calculate import or export duties or to assess whether other regulations apply. In addition, the customs declaration is used to supervise. The amount of imposed duties depends on the type of product and the country of origin. The import duties can be determined on the basis of the exporting country and the commodity code (so-called HS or TARIC code). In addition to import duties, other charges may apply for the goods that you want to import or export. For example, you can think of anti-dumping duties or agricultural taxes.
