Trade facilitation looks at how procedures and controls governing the movement of goods across national borders can be improved to reduce associated cost burdens and maximise efficiency while safeguarding legitimate regulatory objectives.
Emerald Freight Express provide a trade facilitation service and we're committed to making your supply chain as seamless as possible in order to avoid customs delays in transit.
With regard to import duty rates we suggest as follows:
To determine the correct Tariff Classification for any product traders are welcome to confer with us for assistance and advice. The Tariff Classification Process is very important as it will determine what level of Import Duty / Tax is applicable for the Importation of products into Ireland / EU, or any overseas market. It will also determine if any special license is required or if there are any quota restrictions involved.
However, if there is any doubt in relation to Tariff Classification on products, traders are advised to contact Emerald Freight Express for advice or a second opinion as in many cases we’ll be happy to contact Customs / Revenue on your behalf to seek clarification / confirmation on the correct Tariff application.
Furthermore, it’s always highly recommended that if the Importer requires absolute certainty we can apply to Customs to request a Binding Tariff Instrument (BTI) which in effect, is a written confirmation from Customs to verify the correct Tariff Classification for any product. In many of these cases a sample of the product must be produced, so Customs can clearly see what materials the product is made from and its functionality. This helps Customs to determine the correct Tariff Classification and BTI.
As and when required we can also refer you to a associate firm of trade consultants who can give you further professional advice on any customs/ trade regulatory compliance issues, across the globe.
If you require any assistance in relation to trade facilitation and compliance please contact us when you can be always be assured of our best advice and consultation in this regard.
