Importing household and personal effects in a country in the EU means that one has to deal with the rules the EU countries have adopted individually. Unfortunately, the Netherlands at this point have fairly strict and complex regulations concerning customs clearance, which contrasts negatively with many of the other EU partners.
In contrast to the UK, where completing a simple C3 form is sufficient for duty free import of household and personal effects, the Netherlands has a procedure that presents a long list of documents required.
You can apply for an Exemption from Duties and Taxes for household and personal effects.
In order to be granted this exemption there are some restrictions that will apply, such as
- Importer should have officially resided outside the EU for a period of at least 12 month
- The goods should have been personally owned and used by importer for at least 6 months and not have been purchased for the purpose of this importation.
- The goods should be in your personal posession for at least 12 months after importation in the EU
For a fixed rate of € 185,00 T we gladly arrange the customs clearance for you. We will supply you with the neccesary documents, collect and check everything and do the customs application.
