What else can we tell you about customs accreditation?

The first customs clearance of the cargo is paramount!!!

Be prepared for surprises at customs at the first delivery of goods, as you are a new player in the league of importers and exporters, and you will definitely be interested, both from competitors (for example, if they monitor this market) and from regulatory authorities. Therefore, the preparation of a package of documents is extremely important, like the first customs clearance. Cargo clearance can go easily and without a hitch, or it can be quite difficult, and you should know that a customs broker should be a strong and authoritative representative of your interests and competently build a line of defense.

The work of an excellent customs broker is very similar in meaning and content to the work of an excellent lawyer.

Preparation and verification of a package of documents for customs clearance is important!!!

Prepare a package of documents for customs clearance in advance.

Whether you have customs clearance of cargo in the export or import mode, it doesn’t matter, you should know that by preparing and working out a package of documents for customs clearance of the cargo as efficiently as possible, you will avoid unpleasant surprises at customs during customs clearance of cargo, from payments for transport’s downtime to overpayments at customs.

If you are an exporter, your counterparty will only be grateful to you for a complete and high-quality package of documents for customs clearance of goods in the recipient’s country.

Customs clearance of imported goods.

After the company is accredited by customs, you are ready for customs clearance of imported goods. It is worth knowing that the first customs clearance will be 100% likely with the inspection of the relevant services, which means that it will be necessary to enter the customs control zone at the customs and logistics terminal and pay for this service afterwards. Prices in Ukraine vary from 400 to 3000 hryvnia for the arrival of a vehicle, and this is a normal procedure for the first delivery of the cargo.

Having worked out a high-quality logistics model with our specialists, you can get the opportunity to register at the border of imports in the 40EA import mode without going to the customs terminal, or at the import 40АА checkpoint with the possibility of inspection right at the border, which will significantly reduce and optimize the logistics model.

Export customs clearance.

After the company is accredited by customs, you are ready to clear the export cargo. It is imperative to work out a financial model for VAT refunds and a logistics model for customs clearance of goods along the route.

If you are a manufacturer of products, you should consider obtaining a special status of an authorized exporter, which will entail a lot of positive dynamics for your business. If you have any questions, we recommend that you sign up for a consultation with our customs brokers.
