How to apply in the Dutch VAT tax return the so called “article 23 VAT”?

Non-EU companies wishing to import goods in the Netherlands can apply for article 23 VAT. If the article 23 license VAT is granted by the Dutch tax authorities, the importer has a deferral in paying Dutch VAT from the date of import to the date it files the periodic VAT return. What happens is that VAT chargeable from the import is deducted also in the same periodic VAT return.
