When goods come from outside the EU, they will normally have to be cleared. An alternative option is to store the goods 'under customs'. This means that the goods can be stored without having to pay import duties immediately. This is useful, for example, when you only need the goods for a longer period of time. When you export the goods, no import duties have to be paid at all. This increases the liquidity of a company and provides extra flexibility.

A customs warehouse is a location approved by customs where goods are stored that are subject to excise duties, import duties, VAT and / or anti-dumping duties. Today, the business community is almost entirely responsible for the control and supervision of the customs warehouse. Customs still carries out unannounced checks at these locations. It is therefore also important that all things are in order. When you do business with a real specialist, you can assume that these matters have been arranged.
There are two types of customs warehouses, namely a public customs warehouse and a private customs warehouse. A public customs warehouse is available to every company. These bonded warehouses are often used for short-term storage of non-union goods. Private warehouses are reserved for the storage of goods for the holder of the customs warehouse. The holder of this license is also responsible for the storage of the goods.
Basically it is not allowed to handle or process goods in the customs warehouse. Exceptions have been made for a number of products or product categories. This is also referred to as 'usual treatments'. These are aimed at keeping the products in good condition, improving the presentation or preparing them for distribution / resale. Consider, for example, repacking goods, keeping plants and trees in good condition, treating fruit & vegetables against parasites or adjusting a machine for resale. Ask our specialists about the possibilities for your products.
