What do you need to know about customs audit?

Check the rates of duty BY PRODUCT CODE

During the check, the most important factor in the correct declaration is to perform the coding of the goods according to the original documents and check for any discrepancies in the total, since these discrepancies can lead the item to both the lowest and the highest rate of the tax burden. Therefore, it is important to always correctly code the goods in order to avoid additional charges in the future for an already issued cargo.

Check the logistics pricing

The lack of control over the pricing of transport costs leads to the enrichment of third parties, or rather, only regular control of the price formation of transport will help you always keep the market corridor of the correct price.

Check the application of non-tariff regulation

Often, when everything is fine or is going well, customs brokers or declarants of enterprises forget to apply non-tariff regulation documents, which give companies either a legal move to a more preferential rate of duty, or even its abolition.

This is one of the reasons why it is worth applying the European model of four-eye control over an established business process.

Actions for the return of customs payments

During the stress test, it is possible to identify huge overpayments of customs duties towards the state. We have two news: the first – you owe, the second – get ready for painstaking and regular work on returning customs payments to the account of your company. This procedure is complicated and real, and most importantly, you will make it clear to the system that it will not be like yesterday. Thus, you began to form a new image of your company in the eyes of the state.


Do I need to check the entire period of customs clearance of the goods?

What period is subject to verification is up to you to decide.

If this is a preventive stress test of your foreign economic activity, including customs clearance of goods, then we recommend that you do an express audit and go through specific goods deliveries from the supplier to your warehouse.

Can I return the overpaid money to the budget?

Yes, overpaid payments can be returned, for this there is a separate procedure and preparation of a package of letters and documents for already cleared cargo to the relevant customs authorities.

In the course of a customs audit, we can reveal the incorrect assignment of UKTZED codes, which, as a result, can lead to a decrease in the tax burden – for example, transferring goods to a lower rate of duty or declaring goods without applying preferences to them, for example, the EUR1 certificate.

Sign up for a consultation and we will be happy to answer all your questions during the meeting.

What is the brightest and most revealing period for verification?

The brightest and most revealing period is the period that you first of all think is worth checking, or the moment of maximum load of your cargo traffic.

To understand the effectiveness of your logistics model, it will be enough to conduct a stress test of 5-7 transactions; for a deeper study – of course, a broader study of the supply chain.

Is it worth doing an express audit or a complete and deep stress test of foreign economic activity?

It is worth doing a logistics stress test unambiguously, no matter how fine you are and how many kebabs you eat with your service providers.

An express audit will answer in what state your logistics is and how effective it is in a large cage.

A deep study will find all the bottlenecks and points of overpayment, and the preparatory process for the return of customs payments-overpayments to your company.

Therefore, we always recommend doing a logistics stress test, and the test results will surprise you: either they will be very upset, or great – this is from what angle to look at the identified processes and supply episodes.

How long does a customs audit take?

The term of the customs audit is up to two weeks of express analysis.

A complete audit, if you want to conduct it, will depend on the depth and width of the audit, and this is from 1 month to 3 months and more, everything will depend on how much we find and what goal you will pursue as a result after checking your logistics.

How much does a customs audit cost?

The price for a quick analysis of logistics and express customs audit will be from 15000 UAH including VAT.

The price of a full customs audit is always individual and depends on the number of transactions that are subject to verification and identification of all beneficiaries in the supply chain.
