Professional customs clearance with Rhenus

The import of goods from a non-EU or third country into the EU must be declared to the customs authorities and import duties such as customs duties and taxes must be paid. Customs experts make absolutely sure that all the formalities involved in cross-border transport are dealt with quickly.

Our Services in Customs Clearance

As a result from Brexit, custom borders between the European Union and the UK  have appeared. Tax and customs registrations therefore remain a prerequisite, as does the preparation of customs applications for the import and export of goods. 

Rhenus Belgium's own in house customs department reduces your administrative burden 

We offer our customers the opportunity of benefiting from the advantages of tax-free deliveries within Europe

Transit papers are required for goods in transit through a customs area. Rhenus Belgium delivers these electronic documents, assuring a smooth follow-up of your shipments.

We become the fiscal representative as part of the EU customs clearance procedure for companies that are not registered for value-added tax purposes in Belgium. This means that we look after all the necessary declarations and communications.

Our consultancy services include risk assessments and planning work prior to making any application, making the application itself and providing support for audits by the responsible customs authority.

Tariff numbers, customs rate and customs value

During the import process, each shipment of goods is assigned a tariff number, which assigns it to a specific customs rate. The customs rate, together with the customs value (which is calculated on the basis of the invoice price with additions or deductions), constitutes the basis for the customs amount to be paid.

Nowadays, customs clearance is for the most part carried out as an electronic declaration of the freight documents.


Holistic customs services

The customs experts at Rhenus will also support you in all matters of compliance. For instance, we make sure that all anti-terrorism regulations and trade restrictions are observed.


Storage in our bonded warehouses

Based on your specific needs, your goods will be stored in our bonded warehouses duty unpaid as well as secure, theft-proof and weather-protected until they continue on their further transport route to their final destination. In our capacity as an authorised consignor, we can clear goods at authorised locations without being on site ourselves and also involve third parties in this authorisation.
