Knowledge in the field of customs procedures, legislation and processes



Everyone involved in international transport of goods sooner or later has to deal with customs procedures. In our region these procedures are no longer established by national governments but by the European Union and sometimes by the World Customs Organization. As a result of this customs procedures are universal and we do things more or less in the same way worldwide.

Customs procedures once were designed to ensure the proper levying of import duties. One of the features of import duties is that they cannot be reimbursed in general once paid. This is the result of the fact that import duties are depending on the type of product and the situation. Import duties differ from one type of goods to another and from one country of origin to another. Import duties sometimes are dependent on a certain use of the goods.

There still is some uncertainty about the agreement EU and UK will establish as from the first of January 2021 but it is a fact that Brexit is going to happen. In the area of customs procedures this will affect international trade and transportation. In particular companies which do have the UK as their only export destination outside the EU will face procedures they are not used to. Although it is uncertain what agreement will be the result of the negotiations between UK and the EU, we are sure import and export declarations have to be lodged in trade between both parties. This is completely new. .

For logistical parties it is important that exporters and importers in the inland declare their goods before approaching the border (ports and airports) in order to avoid traffic jams and loss of time and money at these borders. The above picture of Portbase shows us the five steps to get ready for Brexit. (click on the picture to enlarge).

We do conduct short courses and trainings on customs procedures and related items for employees of companies dealing with these problems. Please do not hesitate to contact us and find out what we can do for you..
