Cross-border ecommerce made easier with the help of Crossborderit (CBIT)
February 7, 2022
When packages enter a country, they must be declared to customs. An electronic customs declaration required for the customs broker to identify which goods are entering the country.
Customs declarations provide important information about the goods. A customs declaration is a tax document that provides detailed information on imports and exports. It is used to determine the taxes and duties payable. In addition, Customs will use the information on the declaration to verify that the goods can enter the country. Or it can be landed to the consignee.
To comply with EU e-commerce obligations, a customs declaration must be filed.
In the event that the customs broker considers the information on the declaration to be incorrect or incomplete, he will not land the goods. In such cases, this usually results in increased fees and a time delay.
It is important to ensure that the electronic customs declaration is correct. That they include the correct HS code and that they are sent to customs.
In order for markets, carriers and postal operators to comply with this, they must switch to automatically generated electronic declarations. It is impossible to meet this demand manually.
For these reasons Crossborderit CBIT has developed a SaaS platform software where it allows you to upload your classifications, calculate the total import costs for the buyer, collect all fees and forward them to the import broker, all this together with all relevant master data, thus making a fully complete B2C customs declaration for a smooth cross-border entry in the destination country.
