If you are going to import from or export to a country outside the European Union (EU), you must declare the goods to Customs. Many different customs documents are required for this, such as import- , export- , en origin documents. The other documents / certificates depend on the country of destination / origin and the type of product. Moreover, it is sometimes quite complicated and time-consuming to obtain the correct customs documents.

When importing goods from a country outside the European Union (EU), the goods must be placed under a customs procedure by means of a customs declaration in the electronic declaration system (AGS) at Customs. This usually refers to the completion of the customs formalities for placement under the procedure: release for free circulation (Import> IM4), whereby you will have to deal with the application of statutory duties, such as customs duties and VAT.
To export goods from the Netherlands and/or the European Union (EU), an export document (EX-A or EU-A) is required. We use the electronic declaration system (AGS) for this. This system is mandatory for exports throughout the EU, so that Customs has a better understanding of which goods leave the EU. The advantage here is that we can file the declaration at any location in the Netherlands. This guarantees quick handling and transport can take place as quickly as possible.
Documents of origin are required upon import into the country of destination for various reasons. Often when countries have introduced trade measures with the aim of stimulating their markets (discount or exemption on import duties) or, conversely, shielding them (additional levies or product-specific measures). In these trade measures, the origin of the goods plays an important role.
