Customs  Clearance Documents

customs clearance documents

The  customs clearance for commercial cargo is the process that involves the clearing of goods through the customs barriers for importers and exporters (usually businesses).

This involves the preparation of documents and or electronic submissions, for the calculation and usually the payment of taxes, duties and goods and service tax.  

To complete the clearance process shipping documents are required, the type of documents needed for importing or exporting transactions usually depend on the type of goods you have. 

In many cases, the documentation may also vary depending on the country of origin or destination. Thus, documents may have to be prepared in a particular way to comply with the requirements of the import or export country. 

As a rule of thumb, a standard importing or exporting transaction usually requires a commercial invoice, quarantine packing declaration,packing list, bill of Lading and an insurance certificate ,depending on your Inco terms.  

We always ensure the appropriate documentation is completed and the correct importing procedures are followed.
