There’s no avoiding customs formalities when you ship across international borders. We can help make sure it all happens efficiently, accurately and as quickly as possible.
Customs Classification of Goods
The paperwork and documents that you provide are used at customs clearance points throughout your shipment’s journey. To avoid delays and/or fines, it’s therefore incredibly important that the documents and the information you provide are accurate.
A commercial invoice must accompany international shipments. Depending on the goods and destination additional documents may be required, such as a Certificate of Origin, ATR or EUR1. You may also require a licence if you are shipping restricted goods as covered by import or export regulations.
Duties and Taxes
When goods are sold, you have to pay sales tax. The amount differs from country to country. It is charged on all sales transactions as a percentage of the value of the goods. These duties and taxes must be paid before customs will release the goods for delivery.
