Origin & Preferences finds out whether your company can take advantage of a specific preferential agreement. Determining whether a product qualifies for preferential origin and can therefore be imported into the country of destination under preferred conditions is extraordinarily complex, as it depends on the interaction of numerous rules. The software knows all the terms of EU and Swiss preferential agreements and takes them into account. Detailed documentation ensures that you can always provide the necessary information to customs authorities and your own customers.

Determining the minimum sales price needed to maintain preferential origin

Origin & Preferences uses existing data to calculate the minimum sales price you must obtain for your goods to preserve the preferences. The recommended sales price may vary significantly by country and agreement due to the varying rules of origin. Origin & Preferences takes all that into account. So you can actually benefit from your competitive advantages.

Rules of origin that are always up to date thanks to the AEB data service

Has the agreement already come into force? Which rules apply to which product? Origin & Preferences incorporates a data service provided by AEB in partnership with respected content providers, so you can count on rules of origin that are always up to date.

        Questions?

        What happens when a new preferential agreement comes into effect?

        With the licensed data service from Bundesanzeiger Verlag, the agreements are automatically updated in the system. Otherwise, the rules must be input and updated manually.

        How long is a long-term supplier’s declaration (LTSD) valid?

        A long-term supplier’s declaration (LTSD) can be issued for a period of up to two years. This depends on the date of issue. The period of validity must be noted on the LTSD. A declaration can also be issued with retroactive effect. This process is described in the implementing provisions 2015/2447 and satisfies the requirements of the Union Customs Code. Origin & Preferences lets you define all permissible periods of validity.

        How can I update master data in Origin & Preferences?

        You can update transaction data by re-importing it. Master data can also be updated through a fresh import – or manually edited if this option is enabled in the settings.
