5 required documents for customs clearance? (part 2)

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.

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 documents that are common to all countries:

1- ProForma Invoice

Proforma invoices provide information about the product to be sold.

2- Customs packing list

Each party involved in the operation can cross-check the customs packing list with the Pro-forma invoice for the items in the shipment.

3- COO Certificate (Country of Origin)

This is a declaration that goods being shipped are made and processed in the country in question.

4- Customs Invoice

The Customs invoice is a mandatory document for an export transaction. Customs officers will request the customs invoice as it includes information about the order.

5- Shipping bill

A shipping bill is an important document and serves as a measurable record and is generally submitted via a custom online software system (ICEGATE).

Specialist customs clearance and freight forwarding

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.

What is Customs Clearance?

Customs Clearance Service

Customs clearance is the process of documenting the comings and goings of goods

Customs clearance is the process of documenting the comings and goings of goods as they enter or leave a country. Customs clearance entails calculating the value-added tax (VAT) and duties that may be due on those goods, as well as following the correct procedure to ensure that the goods enter or exit the country legitimately.

 

 

If you do not adequately prepare your Customs Clearance Paperwork, Customs may refuse to allow your goods to enter or leave the jurisdiction. You can hire a customs agent or freight forwarder to manage the Customs Clearance procedure to help ensure your goods are allowed exit or entry.

How Long does Customs Clearance take?

Customs Clearance Service

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.

Customs Clearance News - UK and Ireland

Taoiseach and Johnson in ‘positive’ NI Protocol talks

Customs Clearance News - UK and Ireland

Customs Clearance News – UK and Ireland positive meetings

The Taoiseach told a Fianna Fáil party meeting last week that he had a positive engagement with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

 

Micheál Martin said the focus is on the resolution of the outstanding issues around the Northern Ireland Protocol.

Ensuring Northern Ireland has access to the single market with minimal checks is important, he said.

The Taoiseach said there was a genuine willingness on the EU side to resolve this through negotiation.

“During our call, I told him it remained my view that every effort should be made to secure a successful outcome to the current EU/UK negotiations.”

Since leaving the EU last year, Britain has delayed the introduction of some checks that were designed to avoid the need for a hard border on the island of Ireland.

Downing Street said the checks are disproportionate and threaten Northern Ireland’s 1998 peace deal.

A spokesperson for Boris Johnson said the British Prime Minister “raised his ongoing concern about the substantial distance between the UK and EU positions” on issues with the protocol when he spoke to Micheál Martin today.

However, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Simon Coveney, said he believes there is a “window of opportunity” for Britain and the European Union to reach agreement on Northern Ireland trade rules.

“I believe … there is an opportunity before us now to seize momentum towards agreeing a constructive way forward through compromise and partnership,” Mr Coveney told the Seanad Brexit committee.

“I believe the remaining issues can be resolved,” he said. “However, to do so we need to get a much more positive, a much more stable and much more trusting EU-UK relationship.

“We have some way to go to get there.”

Mr Coveney told the committee that Northern Ireland was better off with the protocol.

“Northern Ireland has this unique opportunity to access a very large UK single market, but also a much larger EU single market.

“There is potentially a pull factor into Northern Ireland in terms of foreign direct investment – if the protocol was stable and predictable you could access both markets from Northern Ireland.”

Asked to give an update on the current negotiations, Mr Coveney said there had been a “change in tone” from the UK two weeks ago.

He added: “This certainly suggested to the EU that negotiation was worth investing in, because before that really the negotiations were going nowhere.

“I am more hopeful than I have been.”

He added: “There’s still quite a big gap between the two sides, but at least the negotiations are focused on trying to find landing ground.”
