Damaged goods

Sometimes goods are damaged before the customs clearance process has been completed. Such goods are exempt from taxes. 

The damage must have arisen during transport, or while the goods were in the customs warehouse. 

To obtain exemption from taxes, it is a condition that the goods are destroyed by, or in agreement with, Norwegian Customs. 

If the goods are not damaged completely, a partial reduction of the calculation basis may be relevant.
