What matters when it comes to customs clearance for your goods

If you and your company expect goods from other EU countries, the extensive topic of customs clearance will quickly become relevant. Incorrect or ignorant actions can quickly lead to additional costs or long waiting times. Even worse: The expected goods only arrive with a considerable delay.

The key to efficient clearance is always the correct declaration of the goods, compliance with all regulations and the payment of any taxes/duties. However, there may also be some special guidelines if you have ordered special goods such as medicines or the products come from a region with special regulations.

Frequently asked questions

1. What exactly is Customs Clearance?

Customs clearance is mandatory before international import or export of goods. After a shipment of goods has been processed, the shipper must certify that the appropriate customs duties have been paid and the shipment can be processed. On the other hand, almost every country levies duties and taxes when importing goods across its borders. In this way, revenue is generated on the one hand and the economy, the environment and the population are protected on the other.

2. How does the customs clearance work?

First, we create all the necessary documents for you. In addition to the customs declaration, this also includes customs tariffs, customs certificates and supplier declarations. We then transmit this to customs, which then carries out customs clearance. As soon as customs clearance has taken place, you can export your goods.

3. How long does it usually take to clear customs?

Experience has shown that customs clearance takes between 12 and 24 hours, depending on the workload of the respective office. It usually takes longer if the relevant documents are not at hand, if there are errors in the documents or if the goods have to be checked more closely again.
