CUSTOMS CLEARANCE OF GOODS: ORDER, PROCEDURE AND ITS STAGES

✔ First, customs declarations are filled out. They contain information about all goods that are subject to customs duties on import or export across the Russian border. Then the representative of the supplier presents the goods to the customs officers and describes the goods. This stage is called oral declaration. Next, customs officers inspect the cargo. Inspectors check whether the presented goods correspond to the declarations and the oral description. If the goods are packed, then the packaging may be opened if there is suspicion of transporting prohibited goods.

✔ The amount of duty payable to the budget is calculated. The size of duty is determined in accordance with the HS code assigned to the cargo. The next step is the payment of fees. The carrier is obliged to make all payments, and present receipts to customs officers. A permit is issued for the movement of goods across the border. Having in hand all receipts and issued permits, the carrier should be transported with cargo across the border.

This order is valid on any borders of countries that are not members of the Customs Union. The carrier goes through two clearance procedures: at the customs of the country of export, and at the customs of import. In both cases, fees must be paid if any benefits are not applicable.

A procedure such as customs clearance in Rostov-on-Don, Krasnodar or any other Russian city is usually carried out in several stages established in the requirements of customs legislation.
