Most of the goods arriving from non-EU countries must be declared to Customs. That is to say, each individual shipment must be declared separately, and you must deal with customs procedures. This is where our customs specialists will take care of your shipments.
For example, each product in combination with the origin carries its own duty rate, preferences, and exemptions. Other general considerations include anti-dumping fees, agricultural duties, and excise. However, the level of the various duties to be applied, depends on several factors and is different for each declaration. And moreover, the customs value must be determined correctly. This is important because of the calculation of the import costs. Above all, import declarations may be temporary or may involve re-imports.
