Authorisation for deferment of payment

You can apply for a deferment of payment of about five weeks from Customs for customs duties, value added tax, and service charges within importation from non-EU countries. Your company will get possession of the goods after paying customs duties, taxes and other payments.

A requirement for payment deferment is that your company has a comprehensive guarantee authorisation.
