Importing a car into the Netherlands may sound like a daunting task, but understanding the rules and regulations involved will make the process much easier. A foreign registered vehicle may be driven in the Netherlands for up to three months; after that point, the vehicle must have Dutch number plates. The fees for importing and registering a vehicle in the Netherlands vary according to several factors, including the age, origin, and condition of the vehicle.

Tax-Free Import

If a vehicle has been owned for at least six months and has been driven more than 6,000 km, it may qualify to be imported duty-free. The documents needed to request a tax-free import may be obtained from the Tax Administration. Contact Dutch customs at 0800-0143 to start the process of your tax-free import.

Note: If you import a vehicle tax-free, you must own it for at least 12 months after immigrating to the Netherlands. If a vehicle is sold prior to being in the Netherlands for 12 months, you will be liable for paying all of the import fees that were waived.

Taxes and Fees

The Netherlands levies several taxes and fees on vehicles before a number plate can be issued.Β  These taxes and fees may include:

  • Value Added Tax (VAT/BTW)
  • BPM - a β€œgreen” tax that the first person to register a vehicle in the Netherlands is required to pay
  • Import Duties

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To The Netherlands

  1. Bill of sale/purchase invoice
  2. Proof of identity (passport or driver’s license)
  3. Foreign Vehicle Registration CertificateCertificate of Conformity
  4. Title or proof of ownership
  5. Proof of insurance for 6 months
  6. VAT (value-added tax) receipt
  7. Proof of residency outside EU (12 months)
  8. Passport
  9. Bill of lading

All vehicles operating in the Netherlands must be approved by the RWD (National Service for Road Traffic). An RWD location can be found by calling 0900-0739. When you visit an RWD approval center, the following are required:

Note: Vehicles registered in another EU country, or those that are included as part of your personal moving inventory (no matter the country of origin) will be approved for operation in the Netherlands.

Registration

After your vehicle has been approved by the RWD, you may register your vehicle. This process takes place within the BPM department of the Customs Authorities, located within the RWD offices. You must bring the following:

  • The vehicle
  • BPM form issued by the RWD
  • Proof of origin of the vehicle
  • Certificate of Conformity or the Individual Vehicle Approval (if the vehicle is coming from outside the EU

During the registration process, the BPM amount that you owe will be calculated. After you have paid the fee, the Customs Authorities will submit proof of payment to the RWD, and they will send you a vehicle registration certificate showing that the vehicle is registered in your name.

Note: In some cases, BPM fees may be waived. Visit the website of the Tax Authorities for further details.Β
