10 Customs and excise duties

Customs law concerns the rules that are related to cross-border freight transport (mainly taxes on the import of goods). Excise duties are taxes on the domestic consumption of certain products that are legally listed (fuel, alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, …), for which no deduction exists and which is payable at the moment of the release for consumption.

Disputes concerning customs and excise duties are often not limited to tax aspects, but may result in a criminal prosecution.
