Import Filing: e-dec Always the best option for your Swiss imports

Import Filing: e-dec from AEB guides you through everything from the import declaration filed with the Swiss Federal Customs Administration to the electronic assessment decision. Don’t keep your customers in Switzerland waiting for their goods!

From 1.071 SEK/month

The simple, reliable way to create Swiss import declarations

All you need for imports to Switzerland is an enterprise identification number (UID) from the Swiss Customs Client Administration, a CSP account – and Import Filing: e-dec. The customs software from AEB guides you through each step of creating an electronic import declaration and sending it off directly to the e-dec system of Swiss customs. This saves you the costs of hiring a customs service provider. 

You can respond online to error messages from customs and adjust or delete declarations. This is the fastest way to obtain a release of your goods and receive the electronic assessment decision (eVV Zoll, eVV MwST). Documents like the import list and delivery orders can be managed directly in the software and printed out as needed.

In 2018, the Swiss Federal Customs Administration switched to an electronic procedure for retrieving import documents. AEB responded with its eVV Import business service, the perfect enhancement to Import Filing: e-dec. This gives you a secure electronic process for regularly retrieving import documents like the electronic assessment decision (eVV) for customs and VAT and the corresponding refunds, either individually or collectively.

  No math required: the currency calculator

Imports to Switzerland must be declared in Swiss francs, of course. Import Filing: e-dec is set up to provide the currency exchange rates published daily by the Swiss Federal Customs Administration.

Switzerland lies in the heart of Europe but is not an EU member state. That’s why it’s an important receiving country for shipments processed under the New Computerized Transit System (NCTS)—and it’s why Import Filing: e-dec supports the discharge of transit arrivals. Authorized consignees can use the software to generate, edit, and search for transit arrivals. Import Filing: e-dec also keeps you in the loop about any transit procedure controls ordered by the customs authorities.

Managing your imports in-house only makes sense if it minimizes manual processes such as data entry. That’s why Import Filing includes a template functionality that lets you efficiently manage large numbers of recurring transactions. After the declaration data has been applied automatically from your host system, your employees will only have to add additional data in exceptions. Then, the declaration is transferred automatically to the customs authorities – after its plausibility has been validated.
