VENUE Simplified Declarations for Netherlands e-Commerce

Thu , 28 Jan 2021 | Customs, declaration, the Netherlands, ecommerce, Venue

The VENUE system was set up in 2016 to facilitate and promote a simplified procedure for the international trade of e-commerce goods to and from the Netherlands. It gives e-commerce traders holding a VENUE permit the opportunity to submit incomplete declarations in advance in order to speed up their import and export declarations. Import consignments with a value exceeding € 22 and export consignments with a value exceeding € 1.000 must then be declared in a supplementary declaration within a set period of time. Those with a lower value are exempt from VAT and customs duties and no further action needs to be taken.

VENUE was initially set to expire on 1 January 2021, however it has been extended in light of Brexit with key changes to deadlines, terms, and conditions. Different deadlines apply depending on the types of movements of the e-commerce goods and the age of the VENUE permit, as outlined below. If you use VENUE simplified declarations, it is important to be aware of these deadlines to avoid delays.
