Customs formalities,
a specialised job.

International business involves specific customs legislation. Are you fully aware of all economic, financial, fiscal and health regulations? In some cases, strict embargoes even apply. All these rules are constantly evolving. More and more companies – even multinationals – are finding it difficult to keep up and deliberately choose to outsource customs formalities to specialists such as DKM.

DKM is the perfect outsourcing partner on three fronts: customs formalities and customs management, consultancy and fiscal representation.

Worry-free export
The declaration, checking or follow-up of your export files under one roof? DKM closely monitors the entire process, including advice on trade embargoes, certificates and other export-related issues.

A smooth import
Importing goods from outside the European Union involves import formalities. DKM calculates your import duties and VAT. And we will also file the necessary declarations fast and correctly. Do you have to deal with anti-dumping duties, or do quotas apply? DKM will assist.

Transit monitoring
Do you need to submit declarations for goods under customs supervision? We will forward your declarations electronically via our NCTS system at a time you specify.

customs management

We act as your expert intermediary and – if required – conduct negotiations with customs authorities on import duties and licences. In short: we offer complete customs management.



International trade has made the world a lot more accessible. However, up-to-date knowledge of customs legislation and regulations remains crucial. DKM is an experienced partner who keeps abreast of the latest developments thanks to continuous internal and external training. We do not stop at customs issues. We also offer answers to questions concerning VAT legislation. We do not do this alone but trust reliable and reputable partners to serve you even better. Do you need to apply for a customs licence? Need advice on your product classification? Or questions about tax representation? Our experts are ready for you.



Questions on VAT have become a hot topic. DKM is the holder of a global VAT identification number, 796.5, and thus takes care of all your intracommunity deliveries and represents the importer as tax debtor.

VAT registration
DKM Customs cooperates with recognised tax consultants to assist companies who need to work with an individual fiscal VAT number.

General fiscal representation
DKM Customs has a global fiscal VAT number in order to support international trade. This enables DKM Customs to act in VAT matters for non-Belgian companies.
