1. Assign Ace Express Freight as your Customs Broker.
First thing's first. Please allow us act on your behalf as a Customs Representative by completing our online Direct Representation Form. It only takes a few minutes and once you're signed up we can take care of all the hard stuff.
2. Make sure you register for an EORI Number from Revenue.
You will need an EORI Number for both imports and exports. Go to the Revenue.ie website and get signed up for your EORI.
3. Authorise Ace Express Freight to make Customs Tax & Excise Duty Payments.
Once you have your EORI number you will be assigned a Trader Account Number (TAN). This is a secure channel through which you can make customs tax and excise duty payments. You can authorise us to use your TAN by simply completing a Customs and Excise Clearance Agent Form at the link below.
4. Commercial Invoices, Packing List, Licenses & Certificates
To enable us to complete a Customs Declaration on your behalf you will need to provide a Commercial Invoice, along with any Licenses or Certificates. Download our Commercial Invoice Template and we'll guide you through the rest.
5. Understand terms such as Value, Incoterms, Origin, Gross, Nett Weight & Commodity Codes.
The importer needs to know the value of goods for trade stats and calculation of VAT/Duty. Both Importers & Exporters will need to know the origin of goods and the goods gross and nett weights, which form part of the Customs Declaration. Find out what all these terms mean and how to assign them at Revenue.ie.
6. Find out more about Incoterms to help prepare Customs Declarations.
Post-Brexit, the relevancy of Incoterms has increased substantially, therefore you should get to know the underlying regulations and ensure you agree to them. The Incodoc Global Trade Guide explains everything.
