Corona: the collection of tax liabilities for Customs is being restarted shortly


As a response to you and other economic operators during the course of the Corona crisis, we have hardly taken any collection measures as of 16 March 2020. We will shortly restart the collection of tax liabilities in stages. Customs takes the same line as the Tax Authorities in the process.

Are you not able to pay in time due to the Corona crisis?

In some cases, you may apply for a special deferment of payment or you may extend it.

  • For domestic excise duty or consumer tax, go to (only available in Dutch) for more information and the terms and conditions
  • For a deferment of payment of import duty and other taxes due upon import, if these are levied with the application of the Customs regulations for import such as VAT, excise duty, consumer tax for alcohol-free beverages and coal tax, go to Corona crisis - payment deferral at Customs for more information and the terms and conditions.

Do not delay your application for deferment but make the arrangements as soon as possible.
