Who needs to apply for import export or customs registrations?
All individuals or businesses that are importing/exporting goods for commercial reasons or importing / exporting goods over R2500 (either once off or throughout the year) need to be registered with customs for an import export license. This is also called an importer’s / exporter’s customs code or customs registration.
This code is required both to clear goods at customs and to make foreign payments through a bank. The license is valid for the lifetime of yourself or your business. It is advisable to apply for both the import and export license at the same time as merchandise traded may be faulty and needs to be returned or you may need a refund at the bank. As it is a lifetime license it is also nice to get all the admin done in one go!
Other customs services we can assist with includes registering for tax saving provisions such as SADC certificates, EUR1 certificates, remover of goods in bond, rebates etc. For more information on these services speak to one of our consultants.
