Customs formalities,
a specialised job.

International trade entails specific customs legislation. Are you fully aware of all the economic, financial, fiscal and health regulations? In some cases, even strict embargoes 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.
