Customs declaration fees

Customs broker rates are based on one of the following transactions: 

  • Declaration
  • Declaration and items
  • Parcel

Partners are free to choose an applicable rate for each AEB customer based on their requirements, i.e.: the type of declaration, type of goods, operation hours, etc.

Invoicing to AEB

AEB partner brokers invoice customs declaration fees to AEB. 

Additional services required by AEB’s customer (e.g. fiscal representation, freight services) do not form part of the commercial and contractual relationship between AEB and the partner broker. Those services should be agreed directly between AEB’s customer and the partner broker.

Prior arrangements for payment of duties and taxes will be made between the partner broker and AEB's customer. 

Typical arrangements include use of the customer's duty deferment account, postponed VAT accounting, use of the customs broker's duty deferment account, and pre-payments by AEB's customer to the broker. In all cases, AEB's customer is contractually and legally obliged to cover these costs.
