1. Drawinuof customs declarations
 
Not relevant for Community goods from other EU countries
 
A CN 22 label, duly completed and affixed to the front of the item, is required for letter-post items containing goods of a value not exceeding 300 SDR. If the value of the contents declared by the sender exceeds 300 SDR, or if the sender prefers, a letter-post item shall also be accompanied by a CN 23 customs declaration. In this case, only the upper part of the CN 22 label shall be affixed to the item. Parcels must always be accompanied by a CN 23 customs declaration.
 
Customs declarations must contain all the information necessary for the application of duties, taxes and control measures on both importation and exportation. Specially, they must state:
–    names and addresses of senders and addressees;
–    the countries of origin and of destination of the item;
–    a description of the goods contained and the HS code index;
–    the gross weight and net weight;
–    the value of the item, specifying the currency used.
 
In addition, certain supplementary statements on the status of the goods (gifts, samples, documents without any commercial value) must be made on the customs declaration.
 
Customs declarations constituting true declarations under Danish regulations, involving liability of the sender, must bear his hand-written signature.

3. Need to attest to the origin of goods

The European Union (EU) has concluded agreements with some countries about tariff preference, so that under certain conditions the goods can be imported with a lower duty rate than the normal duty rate.
 
Under these agreements, one of the conditions for tariff preference is that a proof of origin is submitted to customs. Further details about what kind of proof of origin is required and other conditions can be provided by the local customs office. Proof of origin may be provided either by the sender or by the addressee.

–    are imported for non-commercial purposes;
–    do not have a dutiable value of more than 2'600 DKK.
 
b) Fiscal and customs allowances
Goods sent by a private individual in a non-EU country to another private individual in the EU are not subject to customs duty, provided that their importation is for non-commercial purposes.
 
Consignments are considered to be imported for non-commercial purposes when they:
–    are sent occasionally;
–     solely contain goods for the use of the addressee personally or of that family and the nature or quantity of these goods does not cause doubt about their importation for non-commercial purposes;

To qualify for an exemption from customs duty, the goods contained in a consignment must not exceed an overall value of 45 EUR (approx. 340 DKK).
 
If the overall value of more goods contained in the same consignment exceeds 45 EUR, exemption from customs duty will be granted up to this amount for those goods which, if they were imported separatelywould have been covered by the said exemption, on the understanding, however, that it is not allowed to split up the value of an individual article.
 
Example
 
If a consignment contains two articles at a value of 30 EUR and 25 EUR respectively, only one of these articles can be imported free of duty because it is not allowed to split up the value of the other article.
 
The exemption from customs duty also applies to tobacco, spirits, dessert wine, table wine, perfume and eau de toilette. However, the exemption is conditional on the following maximum quantities per consignment:
Spirits above 22%: 1litre
or

Table wine: 2 litres
Cigarettes: 50
or
Cigarillos: 25
or
Cigars: 10
or
Smoking tobacco: 50 g
or

 
 
A combination of these articles

or

Consignments may be exempted from customs duty without customs clearance if their value, according to the green label (CN
22) or customs declaration (CN 23), is considered to be true and does not exceed 45 EUR.
 
Exemption from VAT is granted to the same extent and under the same conditions as apply to the exemption from customs duty. However, the overall value of a consignment must not exceed 360 DKK. Consignments containing goods of a value exceeding this amount are excluded from VAT exemption in their entirety.
 
Alcoholic beverages, tobacco, perfume and eau de toilette are not exempted from VAT and excise duty.
 
4.2 Low-value consignments
 
Not relevant for Community goods from other EU countries
 
Goods sent directly from a non-EU country to an addressee in the EU are not subject to customs duty when the overall intrinsic value does not exceed 22 EUR (approx. 165 DKK).
 
VAT and excise duties are not charged on consignments whose value does not exceed 80 DKK. The exemptions do not apply to alcoholic beverages, tobacco, perfume and eau de toilette.
