Excise duties are not levied until goods have reached the place where they will be consumed. Anyone who transports excise goods under suspension of excise duty is required to participate in the electronic EMCS procedure. EMCS Filing turns a chore into a pleasure – by automating data entry and providing smart assistance and meticulous documentation.
EMCS Filing supports all the messages that shippers and consignees exchange with the relevant authorities in Germany and the UK. Starting with transmission of the draft e-AD to the customs office of departure and continuing all the way to the report of receipt when the process is complete. If you have the required authorization, the software will even process your monthly periodic entries. Also included: the Intrastat report.
EMCS Filing is designed as a cloud-based solution running from AEB’s data center in Germany. Multiple databases, SSL encryption, and automatic monitoring guarantee the necessary performance and highly secure data transmissions to the customs servers. The software is available 24/7. And if maintenance is needed, you’ll get plenty of notice.
EMCS Filing offers helpful tools and a wizard to guide you through the EMCS process. This starts with an interface to your host system that grabs transaction data, eliminating the need to re-enter the information already captured there. The wizard guides you as you enter the remaining data, alerting you right away to any missing or incorrect entries that would later lead to errors on the customs declaration. And templates help greatly streamline your recurring tasks.
What is the status of the shipment with invoice number 007 for the customer named Smith? Which shipments are linked to complaints? And which transports had missing content? Whether you’re troubleshooting, responding to queries, or compiling statistics for analysis: The software’s powerful search functions will give you the answers you need.
See at a glance all important events relating to your EMCS transactions: error messages from customs, missed deadlines, changes to the destination, cancellations, rerouted or aborted transports, and more. You’re completely in the know, so you can always respond appropriately.
EMCS Filing helps you keep an eye on the big picture even when the customs authorities experience interruptions to the EMCS system: It’s easy to create manual fallback documents that are then submitted electronically once the system is back online.
Want to connect EMCS Filing to your current ERP system? No problem: State-of-the-art APIs make it easy to integrate seamlessly into your IT environment. We even provide you with ready-to-use plug-ins for SAP® systems.
Yes, EMCS Filing supports each country’s national fallback procedure specifications. The software lets you create the necessary fallback document directly in the customs declaration using the data already available, then submit it electronically when the system is back online.
Each EMCS transaction in EMCS Filing is updated as soon as a customs message is sent or received: The name of the status changes, and a progress bar visualizes this. You also have the option to have proactive email alerts sent to yourself or others about key events.
If you are using EMCS Filing as an AEB data center solution, there’s nothing you need to do. EMCS Filing has been certified, and the electronic communication is already in place.
