Import / Export
Importing a car into the Netherlands is time consuming and complicated.
The relevance of the rules depends largely on which foreign country is in question and the purpose of stay in the Netherlands. There is a considerable amount of administration to deal with and taxes and fees need to be paid. We pride ourselves to be an authority in this field. We can help you with tax reduction and even tax-free registation of your vehicle.
Importing a car
When importing a car, customs will want to know where the car is registered. In nearly all situations, private motor vehicle and motorcycle tax must be paid to the Dutch Tax Office.
If the car is registered in the EU, the administration will be less demanding. No customs duty or VAT is charged in this case, but authorisation from the local customs office is a prerequisite. Once that’s obtained we can apply for a vehicle registration certificate, arange motor vehicle tax and take out adequate insurance.
Cars imported from outside the EU are not exempt from VAT and import duties. Authorisation from customs to import a vehicle must be obtained before starting the importation process. Once the car arrives, file an import declaration form.
Because safety and environmental norms vary internationally, the car may need vetting before it is allowed on the road. If it clears, the owner will be permitted to drive it provided a vehicle registration certificate is obtained, motor vehicle tax is paid and adequate insurance is obtained.
Exporting a car
Before exporting a car, research the regulations in force in the other country. There are often exemptions for the removal of personal property including vehicles. Contact the country’s embassy for more exact information. It is essential that Dutch vehicle registration be cancelled before relocating. No restitution will be offered for private motor vehicle and motorcycle tax already paid.

if regulations for moving property do not apply on your situation: Amsterdam Car Company can use the following method to determine to determine the most favourable BPM amount to be paid:
Compare the outcome (the gross bpm amount) according to the old tariff and according to the new tariff.
Take any particulars in the past into account, such as
hybrid or not
particulate matter emissions
Euro 6 standard
accessories that could be excluded from the calculation
Calculate the gross bpm amount before using the depreciation method.
Depreciation on the basis of a price list, a valuation report of a fixed depreciation table
A bpm rate reduction or increase could work against you. In that case you may be eligible for a transitional arrangement.
Are there disadvantages for you caused by the tariff change in the bpm? In that case you may be eligible for a transitional arrangement. These transitional arrangements only apply if a car or motorcycle is registered in the vehicle registration system before the tariff change, but the registration of the car or motorcycle takes place after the tariff change.
