Customs formalities and VAT

Karl Rapp is committed to a smooth running of the procedures. Therefore, we take care of all customs and VAT formalities. Not only through an electronic link with Dutch customs or by organizing our sheds as customs sheds, but also by acting as a tax representative of our clients.

As a company, we are AEO certified (Authorized Economic Operator). As a result, customs will not check goods on previously inspected criteria, inspections are prioritized, and fewer inspections take place on documents and goods. Our service offers you the opportunity to do business across Europe without Customs and VAT problems.
