Before You Ship to the Netherlands

We’ll send you the documents you need to make sure your shipment to the Netherlands makes its way through customs with ease. But we always recommend checking the Netherland’s customs requirements to make sure you don’t ship any restricted items, as this could delay your postage to Holland. And sending on the country’s national holidays could also mean your parcel will arrive later than expected - so it’s always a good idea to check those too.

Customs in the Netherlands - What You Need to Know

The cost to ship to the Netherlands might be affected by EU VAT and customs duty. If your parcel is subject to EU VAT, the rate for the Netherlands is 21% of the total value of your parcel.

You won’t have to pay any extra charges if your shipment to the Netherlands is a gift under the value of £39*/€45.

So if you’re sending as an individual to another individual, and the value of the items inside plus the cost of shipping is less than €45, you won’t pay any VAT! Find out more about shipping gifts to the Netherlands and other EU countries.

If you’re sending from your business, or to another business, directly from a marketplace such as Amazon or eBay, or the value or your shipment is over €45, you will need to pay additional charges.

If you don’t want the recipient of your parcel to pay any tax or duty, choose a service that has our ‘Pre-Pay Delivery Duty Available' banners on. This means the service offers DDP (Delivery Duty Paid), which is where you pay any extra charges needed before you ship, so your receiver won’t have to deal with any surprise costs!
