In matters of foreign economic and trade relations, Ukrainian legislation is no less complex and contradictory than in other areas. “Manual” management of customs from ministerial chairs and confusing regulations with many annexes lead to the fact that the solution of issues that can be interpreted in two ways depends only on customs officials and the actions of a brokerage company that represents the interests of its clients.
Trying to clear goods on their own, a legal entity or business entity faces obstacles at every step: suddenly there is a need to draw up additional documents or obtain certificates, or officials, using the ignorance of the declarants, deliberately delay the process. The services of a customs broker eliminate the need to feel the “charms” of communication with representatives of the executive branch. Professional customs brokers do everything possible and impossible for goods to overcome customs without delay:
prepare a package of documents for import or export in advance;
help to obtain the necessary licenses, certificates, conclusions and permits;
were personally present at the registration of goods;
promptly solve problems on the spot that prevent the passage of customs barriers.
In Ukraine, a customs broker is an expert in communicating with officials of all ranks and issues of taxation of foreign economic transactions. He defends the interests of his customers in controversial situations and reduces the time of processing of goods and their passage through customs. Therefore, the cost of the services of a customs broker is more than recouped by saving time and money achieved as a result of his work.
