Spring may not be held responsible for any damages to or confiscation of the shipment. Therefore, we ask that you refer to the website of your local postal company, customs department, or embassy of the country to which you are sending your shipment for the most recent information.
What is a basic customs compliant commercial invoice?
Customs invoice should at least contain the following information:
Origin of goods by HS codes
Gross & Net weight of goods by HS code
Values of the goods and currencies by HS code
Value of any added services such as Transport or insurances
EORI number & VAT registration number
The above information will determine if duty is payable if applicable. Please note that some may not be dutiable such as service for example. Additionally, if you are sending for example samples, the invoice should still include the wording “Nominal Value for Customs Purpose Only” and should therefore also contain a nominal value. Important to mention that if goods are shipped without commercial invoice this may affect processing of the goods at customs hence delays in your delivery to final consumer.
