WHENEVER

goods from a non-EU country (third country) are to be imported into an EU member state / Switzerland, they must be declared to the relevant customs authority. In order to avoid making mistakes during the customs declaration, you should always have a competent expert at your side to support you throughout the entire customs procedure. You should therefore rely on Gerlach – your customs specialist – when importing.

Import
Rely on our specialists

 

The customs clearance process for importing goods consists of many small steps. Our experts accompany you from the customs declaration to the customs receipt. The customs declaration must be submitted in electronic form to the responsible customs authority. The customs authority then first checks the declaration and the accompanying documents and inspects the goods on a random base.

Before the goods are released for free circulation (so-called surrender), the approval requirements, certificates of origin and all relevant documents of the shipments are checked. In addition, a tax assessment notice is issued. Once the importer has paid all the applicable duties that are due, the declared goods are released for free circulation within the EU.
