The legislation of foreign commerce is fairly complicated and is subject to constant renovation. For that reason, clearance of the goods by customs needs a correct interpretation, which has two main objectives:
- Agility on clearance, reducing disadvantages and superfluous costs during the process.
- To prevent as far as possible that the Inspection, which can be carried out by the customs administration up to 3 years after clearance, may have any undesirable economic consequences for our clients, i.e. that they have been correctly practised in character of their customs classification, value, origin, etc.
Our databases are constantly updated because of the permanent changes in law and customs, which are published in the Official Journal of the European Communities and in the Official Spanish Law Gazette.
