If you import goods from a country outside the EU, chances are you will have to deal with Customs and file an import declaration. This is a mandatory declaration you must file with Customs, in which you indicate the nature and value of the goods. This allows Customs to determine whether import duties and VAT are due and whether other measures may be required, such as inspection of the goods.
It is important to file the import declaration accurately and on time to avoid delays and additional costs. In doing so, it is also important to properly arrange the necessary documents, such as a declaration of origin and any permits or certificates.
Proper preparation and knowledge of procedures and regulations can significantly simplify the import process and save on costs. Therefore, it may be wise to hire an experienced customs broker who can advise and support you in arranging the necessary documents and customs clearance.
In short, when importing goods from a country outside the EU, it is important to be well prepared and aware of the procedures and regulations. By arranging the necessary documents in time and using an experienced customs broker, the import process can run smoothly and you can trade with confidence in the international market.
