Valuation of goods at customs

Home » Events » Valuation of goods at customs

For importers, the process of estimating the value of a product at customs presents problems that can be just as serious as the actual duty rate charged. The WTO agreement on customs valuation aims for a fair, uniform and neutral system for the valuation of goods for customs purposes – a system that conforms to commercial realities, and which outlaws the use of arbitrary or fictitious customs values. The agreement provides a set of valuation rules, expanding and giving greater precision to the provisions on customs valuation in the original GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade).

This half-day module is dedicated to the subject of Customs Valuation and covers the 6 principles. The course will provide a practical insight on practical valuation issues for both exporters and importers and will ensure that traders understand how to be compliant with their Customs declarations and in their international business administration.

This is part of our customs workshop series, designed to help importers and exporters navigate customs procedures effectively. Each half day session will focus on specific customs procedures to help ensure you're businesses is benefitting from them, maintain effective and compliant in-house processes, and minimise potential Duty/VAT liabilities.

Following the introduction of the Union Customs Code in May 2016, there are planned changes to import, export and storage procedures. This will affect any business seeking authorisation for customs regimes, and will lead to more scrutiny of valuations, tariff codes and origins.

Who should attend?
All staff involved in preparing paperwork for import and export, administrators, sales, purchasing, finance, shipping/logistics, compliance and service industries (freight forwarders, legal and financial services).
