From 1 July 2021, an electronic import customs declaration must be made for every consignment of goods from a non-EU country. This means that the previous exemption for consignments up to a value of € 22.00 will no longer apply. For a value of up to € 150.00, however, the import will continue to be duty-free after 1 July 2021. Only import VAT of 7 or 19 % and excise duty must be paid.
The new provision applies to both B2C and B2B goods. Documentary consignments remain unaffected, but must be sent in DIN A4 envelopes. Furthermore, charges of less than € 1.00 will not be levied.
Please also note that customs applications for clearance notices will be required as of 21 June 2021.
