Customs clearance

The customs clearance procedure is obligatory for all goods crossing the customs border of the Russian Federation and the Customs Union. Impeccable execution and thorough verification of the set of documents is the main task in the execution of import-export operations. The slightest mistake in the documentation can lead to a delay in the delivery of the goods and it reflects not only on the budget of the transaction.

Customs clearance in the Russian Federation is regulated not only by laws and regulations of the Government of the Russian Federation but also by numerous letters and orders of the Federal Customs Service of Russia. This practice creates unforeseen difficulties for participants in foreign economic activity, who cannot always quickly navigate a large volume of regulations and foresee situations that may arise during customs clearance, and ultimately suffer from tangible losses instead of making a profit
