Customs clearance

Customs clearance is a major aspect of trade contacts with the Customs Union member-states. Make sure you carefully choose both your customs clearance point and your customs agent. Customs offices sometimes differ in their approaches to clearance, which may have a considerable impact on the time and cost of the customs procedures, not to mention the taxes and duties charged.

Any Russian or international operator will have to face the difficult choice – to perform customs clearance by oneself or to outsource? By appointing a professional customs broker you will minimize clearance costs and time, which will leave you free to concentrate on your main business.
