Customs and excise

vliegtuig met schaduw

Customs and excise are two different forms of tax revenue. You have to pay customs duties when importing and exporting goods. Excise is levied on the removal and import of certain products. These products include fuels, alcohol and tobacco. Both within and beyond the EU, there are often essential differences in the interpretation of customs procedures. Meijburg & Co is here to ensure that you are not disadvantaged by these.
