Customs clearance guidelines

When formal entry is required, we must provide them with the following:

  • Commercial invoice
  • EMPP (Evidence Money Price Paid) This can be in the form of a debit/credit card statement as evidence of price paid.
  • Customer email address. Customs will contact the consignee before clearing and forwarding on for final mile delivery.

Any duty applicable will be payable by the consignee if sent in a DDU environment.

Formal clearance costs will be the responsibility of the shipper: These will be passed back to the client.

Important that good full descriptions and HS Codes are provided for customs clearance.


Parcels held of which charges are refused by the retailer can be destroyed. If requested, a description fee is applicable.

The time parcels will be held is 30 calendar days. If the requested information is not provided by this time, customs can automatically destroy the parcel and a destruction fee is applicable which will be passed back to the retailer.

Data Importance for customs clearance

In the event that poor/vague descriptions or incomplete data is sent, the items run the risk of being held by customs for inspection.

In this event, a copy of the Commercial invoice will be required with full product details. This will then be sent to customs, if approved the parcel will be cleared and forwarded for final mile delivery with no additional costs.
