Simplified import declaration

You can use a simplified import declaration for goods imported from outside the EU.

Fewer details are required when lodging a simplified declaration compared to the standard customs declaration. Some of the details are provided with a supplementary customs declaration, which can be lodged either separately for each simplified declaration or as a recapitulative declaration for a period.

For general instructions on completing a declaration, see the section “General information about completing a declaration”.

The sections of the simplified customs declaration

The simplified import declaration consists of three sections: “Parties”, “Declaration header” (details common to the whole declaration) and “Goods items” (goods item-specific details). 

Each section of the declaration is displayed separately in the service. You can move to the different sections of the declaration by clicking on the relevant button in the side navigation.
