Electronic customs clearance
Electronic customs clearance replaces all written customs declarations and administrative files with electronic messages. This simplifies, automates and speeds up customs clearance and processing.
These rules affect all companies that import or export goods. The customs authority archives the data in a central location and makes it available to the following German agencies: ZORA [The Central Office for Risk Analysis], The Federal Statistical Office, The Federal Office of Economics and Export Control, The Federal Agency for Agriculture and Food, the audit services, the customs investigation services, BAFA [The Federal Export Office], and the tax authorities of the federal states.
All import and export procedures can be easily created using certified FORMAT software, thus securing electronic communication between the economic operators and the customs authority.
The modular structure permits integration with all other programs from the FORMAT product range. The software solutions can also be easily integrated into the corresponding main system, and goods data can be imported directly from the enterprise resource planning or merchandise management systems,
thus providing you with future-proof software solutions. Our software applications are fully certified for all currently approved modules.
