1- Correct Customs Information

Having the correct customs information is critical. The shipping paperwork such as bills of lading, ID labels invoices and packing lists must include the following information: In the case of the commercial invoice you must show the authorised sender and receiver’s full address information, a clear description of the goods and what they are made of and the quantity of the goods being imported and a very clear value of the goods. A fully typed invoice is required with no hand writing.

2- VAT Number – EORI Approved
