Import and the associated import declaration

When you buy goods outside the European Union, you cannot escape the registration of these goods in the Netherlands by means of an electronic import declaration. It is important that you have this done by an experienced specialist, who ensures that a correct declaration is made, to avoid having to pay too much tax unnecessarily.

It does not matter how you import the goods (air transport, sea transport, road transport) or where they come from. We guarantee efficient handling of your import shipment and ensure the correct procedure for your import declaration, tailored to your needs.

What can we do for you?

  • We ensure a correct digital declaration
  • Is your shipment selected by customs for a check? Then we arrange that the right people are in the right place
  • Phimex pays all taxes (import duties and VAT) to customs

What information do we need from you?

In order to be able to make a correct declaration, we need information from you, such as:

  • Signed authorization direct representation
  • Commercial invoices and packing lists
  • Invoice / statement of the paid/payable freight costs (if applicable)
  • Proper commodity codes
