improt from Korea


Hi all,

I am sorry I am writing in English, I hope it is ok. Probably the questions were asked before but it is difficult for a non-dutch speaker to understand.


In short, I want to start my webshop to sell products from Korea.

Can you please help me understand the following:

- what kind of company I should register?

- how does import work? can i just order online products from Korea on my company name and pay taxes at the post or better to do it through a company? I am talking about 1-2k euro purchase, not more.

- which company you d recommend for accounting in the beginning?


Thanks so much for your help!

What kind of products are you talking about? Food stuffs? Cosmetics? Pharmaceuticals? Electronics? Luxury items? Something else?



It will be cosmetics.

thanks for your message.

I totally understand.

I think I need to register BV. I also realise I need to pay 201% douane tax and no other tax as cosmetics are exempt from the additional fees.


But I honestly dont understand how the process works, as not much information is available in English for my particular case.

As this is quiet a sensitive topic and I dont want to make a mistake, I preferred to ask directly on the forum which I managed to find by googling in Dutch.

Okay, I'm locking this topic - if you have any specific questions about details of your webshop you're welcome to ask them, but please do the basic research yourself first.


edit - try starting here: https://www.google.nl/search?q=import+cosmetics+into+netherlands. There's plenty of english language information to be found.
