Scope of Export services

When exporting goods outside the European Union, companies are obliged to carry out a customs clearance. Before check-in, it is necessary to file a declaration of goods.

This is a system which allows the exchange of an export declaration and the exchange of information in electronic form between customs offices within the European Union itself.

Customs clearance for the export of goods consists of document checking and the goods carried. Any goods which are exported outside the European Union must be declared to the Customs Office. Export clearance of the goods must be in written form (SAD) or using electronic data processing (ECS).

The result of customs clearance is an official proof of exportation (IE599). This document is necessary for the application of the 0% VAT rate on the products sold. There are no customs duties or other tax duties in the process for exporting goods outside the EU.
