Customs Clearance Service

5 required documents for customs clearance? (part 2)

Customs Clearance Service

Customs clearance blog

Customs clearance generally requires a lot of documents to be verified and submitted, either electronically or physically with the consignment.

 

Documents to be submitted to customs depend on the type of goods being shipped. The rules regarding customs vary depending on the country of origin and the country of destination.

Let’s look at the second part of documents that are common to all countries:

6- Bill of lading

Bill of lading is a document from the carrier to the shipper/exporter/supplier. It is evidence of the contract for movement of goods described by the carrier.

7- Bill of sight

It is a declaration from the supplier or exporter to the customs department where the receiver is unsure of the type of goods being shipped. The bill of sight document permits the receiver of goods to inspect them before making duty payments. With the bill of sight, the exporter also needs to submit a letter that allows clearance of goods by customs.

8- Letter of credit

The letter of credit is issued by the importer’s bank informing that the importer or the consignee will honour the payment to the exporter /consignor/shipper of the sum specified to complete the transaction.

9- Bill of exchange

Bill of exchange is similar to a promissory note that can be drawn by banks or individuals. It is a substitute payment option where the importer is to clear payments for goods received from the exporter either on-demand or at a fixed or determinable future.

10- Export license

A business can get an export license from the licensing authority and permit is issued by the Chief Controller of Exports and Imports.

What is the difference between specialist customs clearance and freight forwarding?

What is the difference between specialist customs clearance and freight forwarding?

Many exporters, particularly newcomers, believe that freight forwarders and customs brokers are interchangeable terms. This is false.

Freight forwarders are supply chain experts who specialize in the logistics and physical transportation of cargo. They communicate with any entity involved in the exporting process that handles or is aware of a shipment traveling by truck, boat, plane, or a combination of these modes of transportation. Freight forwarders are responsible for assembling and completing a wide range of documentation and compliance filings.

A freight forwarder manages the supply chain, it is a third-party entity that arranges a trip and then facilitates the whole journey, including paperwork and documentation, for a fee

 

A customs broker is someone who assists importers and exporters in meeting government import and export regulations.

Brokers submit required info and payments to governmental bodies on behalf of its customers and claim a fee for the services in entry procedures, admissibility requirements, classification, valuation, and the rates of duty and applicable taxes and fees for imported products.

A customs broker is a term that refers to the person who acts as an intermediary between the importer and the government’s customs department in the country of import.

How Long does Customs Clearance take?

How Long does Customs Clearance Take

With all the Documents pre-checked and the Customs Duty and VAT arrangements in place, Customs Clearance can be completed (Green Routed) within an hour or two of the arrival of the goods. However, if the goods are called for a document check (Orange Routed) or a full physical exam (Red Routed) the length of time could stretch to 24/48hours.

 

It is inexcusable to have a shipment delayed at Customs due to insufficient or poorly prepared paperwork; it is not only bad for business, but it may end up costing you more in additional storage and detention expenses. ACA International does Customs Clearance  in Ireland and is an expert in the Customs Clearance process, and we can assist you in preparing the necessary Customs paperwork in advance to avoid delays or incorrect declarations.

 

If you are importing or exporting goods to sell, it is ideal to have a Customs agent prepare your paperwork so that your shipment can enter the country quickly and efficiently. If you do not follow the correct procedure, your shipment will be held up or possibly seized at the port.
