Customs broker: features of the service
Often you can hear opinions that official registration at customs is an extremely bad idea that can affect the business for the worse.
Most often, the argument will be that such a logic of actions entails a number of significant costs. Turning to intermediaries in matters of customs clearance, the client can be sure that all procedures will be carried out exclusively legally, which is important primarily for large companies and concerns. It is worth remembering that only then the business will be serious when it is open, especially since today the services of a customs broker are quite inexpensive, and the service is provided not only in high quality, but also quickly.
At the moment when the entrepreneur imports some cargo into the territory of the Russian Federation, he is obliged to declare all of it at customs. Customs clearance is an event that will take place in this case – a responsible and difficult procedure. In the event that a novice businessman takes on the solution to this problem, most often he will lose a lot of time on paperwork and at the same time has the risk of incorrectly identifying HS codes. There is also a chance to encounter distrust on the part of the customs representative regarding the valuation of goods. It is also important that without appropriate experience it is very difficult to correctly calculate all customs duties. The company bears full legal responsibility for all errors, which can lead to fines and confiscation of goods, and even a prison term of up to twelve years.
Known for such a saving technique as undervaluation in documents for a batch of goods. Such schemes can be safely called “gray” and as a result of their use if there are big risks. The stability of the business, in turn, can be ensured by adhering to the letter of the law. In the event that the intermediary company is chosen successfully, the client can be sure not only of compliance with the laws, but also that the specialists will take on all the stages of the work and successfully complete the customs clearance.
