Tax business breakfast - Reviews carried out by customs authorities: focus and procedure

2009-05-13 00:00:00
Company: Deloitte
For companies conducting business in countries outside the EU, complying with customs regulations is just as important as complying with other tax obligations.


Tax breakfast goals

  • To introduce the usual focus and procedure of customs reviews.
  • To draw attention to the most common ‘false illusions’ about transferring the responsibility to the customs representative.
  • To advise on how to proceed during a customs review.
  • To present positive and preventative examples.
  • To motivate businesses to implement their own risk mitigating controls in imports and exports.

Most companies, however, focus solely on tax compliance while neglecting the risks related to customs issues. Moreover, companies often rely on their representatives in charge of customs proceedings without actually concluding well thought out contracts and effectively reviewing their representatives' activities.

In an upcoming Tax Breakfast, experts from Deloitte will share experience they have gained from customs reviews and proceedings and provide detailed information on the possible consequences of non-compliance. Attention will be drawn particularly to the focus of the customs reviews and advice will be given on the appropriate steps to take and what to avoid.

Deloitte's upcoming Tax Breakfast is intended for all who know that being well-prepared and taking preventative action is always cheaper than solving subsequent problems.
