Adjust the import duty & VAT (the values on the packages are wrong)


Hi, I am sorry to write in English because my dutch is not good.


I have a small online shop, and imported some products from China to the Netherlands by using DHL.


I have paid the import duty and VAT based on the value written on the package, but recently I found the value written on the packages by the seller are too low. This for several packages delivered in 2015.


For example, the actual product value and shipping cost are around 1000 euro, but on the package, it is written as only 500 euro.


And I paid the import duty and vat based on 500 euro, which is not correct.


I would like to pay the extra import duty and vat based on the actual value, so what I should do? Contact with DHL, or contact with Dutch custom? Or belastingdienst?


Thank you very much for your answers.
