Frequently asked questions

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
  • Seller
  • Buyer
  • Incoterms

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.
