I export mattresses produced or imported by myself. Do I have to pay a contribution to Valumat for this?
No, you do not have to pay a contribution to Valumat on this. Your annual declaration only pertains to the mattresses that you have produced or imported to put on the Belgian market.
Exports are taken to mean the physical shipment of mattresses outside Belgian territory that give rise to an exemption from VAT, to be stated on the invoice, in accordance with Article 39 (supplies outside the EU) or Article 39a (intra-Community supply), as defined in the value added tax code.
