EXPORT CUSTOMS CLEARANCE
The lodging of export declarations with customs authorities is mandatory when goods are leaving the European territory to reach a third country or one of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries. This entails a series of formalities and procedures, in accordance with current legislation.
Though duties and taxes are not imposed by customs authorities when exporting goods from the EU, a significant number of certificates, licences and other documents are required during the export process, either by customs or other public authorities, depending on the nature of the goods, or even by the importer in the third country or the EFTA country.
Available customs procedures such as: Temporary export and re-import, Inward processing, Customs warehousing and all connected customs clearance operations, offer numerous opportunities to the operator.
