The measures are intended to support those companies that are temporarily facing difficulties in meeting their payment obligations under the applicable customs and excise regulations and that may fail to comply with deadlines and formalities under the regulations.

Also, the Dutch Customs authorities have postponed the requirement for an entity to be established in the EU in order to act as exporter for customs purposes.
