The Netherlands confirms new requirements for companies exporting goods from the country

July 2, 2020

From 1 April 2020, non-EU companies will have to either establish their own Dutch company or appoint an EU established indirect customs representative, to export goods from the country.

This requirement follows recent clarification released by the EU commission, confirming that businesses must be established in the customs territory of the EU in order to export. 

Similar export requirements have already been confirmed in other EU member states, including Belgium, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, and most recently Germany.
