The Netherlands is a key European distribution hub. Many companies clear all their European imports through the Netherlands. Import Filing: AGS from AEB provides just the right software support for those businesses that wish to manage their Dutch imports without third-party providers. AEB Import Filing: AGS guides you systematically through the entire process of declaring your imports and discharging transit procedures.
Import Filing: AGS helps you process import declarations for the Netherlands. With Import Filing: AGS you can create, edit, send, and search for complete, incomplete, and supplementary import declarations. Authorizations to be used in import declarations can be defined and managed in the master data. Available procedures include release into free circulation, transfer into inward processing, or temporary use.
Smart shortcuts let you easily import documents like invoices and delivery notes from your host system and automatically generate import declarations. Automatically allocate transport and insurance costs to the various line items by net weight or net price, for example. Smart templates help minimize the valuable work time you spend preparing regularly recurring import declarations. The system is also at your side to help you adjust or cancel declarations.
Import Filing: AGS transmits the completed import declaration to the AGS e-customs system of Dutch customs. An error symbol in Import Filing: AGS identifies import declarations rejected by the customs authorities for errors. Once you have corrected the error, you can immediately resubmit the import declaration. When your imports are released into free circulation, customs sends a tax notice (“Uitnoding tot Betaling” or UTB) notifying you of the duties owed. All such notices can be printed out from Import Filing: AGS. An overview displays any discrepancies between the duties determined in your declaration and the duties assessed by the customs authorities.
The Netherlands is an important receiving country for shipments processed under the New Computerized Transit System (NCTS). That’s why Import Filing: AGS supports the discharge of transit procedures (“transit arrivals”) – and with the simplified procedure. Authorized consignees can use the software to generate, edit, and search for transit arrivals. Import Filing: AGS also keeps you in the loop about any transit procedure controls ordered by the customs authorities.
Many businesses bring in outside help to clear their imports through customs. They pay a pretty penny for this service – money that, in many cases, they could save. Because processing imports through customs does not require sorcery, especially when you have the help of sophisticated software that supports all standard import and transit procedures.

The customs office’s national system will immediately reply with the status of your declaration. So you’ll always be in the loop and confident that your imports will not lie idle for no reason.
Import Filing from AEB is a flexible system which lets you control electronic import declarations for one country – or for currently up to five countries. You can use Import Filing to transmit your data seamlessly to the customs authorities in, for example, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, and the UK. And we are always working on connecting further countries. This centralized application can also be extended for processing through customs service providers.
Waiting for an official customs assessment before you can calculate your import duties is a thing of the past: Import Filing from AEB does the work for you. All the key figures are just a click away, so you can use them early on for calculations, liquidity planning, and more.
Import Filing is designed as a cloud service and runs in AEB’s data center in Stuttgart, Germany. How does that help you? You benefit by having us implement all changes to customs laws in the cloud, for example. Another benefit: our regular updates, which keep Import Filing abreast of the latest developments in software engineering. And a constant connection with the utmost failsafe protections.
Managing your imports in-house only makes sense if it minimizes manual processes such as data entry. That’s why Import Filing includes a template functionality that lets you efficiently manage large numbers of recurring transactions. After the declaration data has been applied automatically from your host system, your employees will only have to add additional data in exceptions. Then, the declaration is transferred automatically to the customs authorities – after its plausibility has been validated.
You must register with the Dutch customs authorities before you can start using Import Filing: AGS. Typically, no extended waiting period is necessary. We’re happy to support you here.
If you want help configuring interfaces to your system environment or training your employees, plan accordingly.
Import Filing: AGS is automatically updated to reflect changes in customs laws as soon as they come into force. No further action is required on your part.
