Extending the ISO Audit Data Collection Standard to improve Customs and indirect tax audits and bring some innovation into this field
20-11-2021

International Standard ISO[1] 21378:2019 aims to make data collection for financial audits more efficient and reliable. In this article, Dutch Customs explains the structure of this ISO Standard and why the Netherlands has submitted a proposal to extend it to cover data related to Customs and indirect tax audits. The article argues that this development is critical to facilitating post-control audits and bringing much-needed innovation in this field of work. At the same time, it will offer the business community the opportunity to reduce administrative burdens and improve their internal control processes and their compliance with regulations.

The illegal wildlife trade: modus operandi and transport routes in West and Central Africa
20-11-2021

The illegal wildlife trade (IWT) poses a risk not only to biodiversity and ecosystems, but also to public health, good governance, economies and security worldwide. Given that the point of sourcing and the end-market are often on opposite sides of the world, criminals exploit existing international transport systems to move their products, and Customs authorities have a critical role to play in disrupting their activities. They must therefore be equipped with the knowledge, resources and capacity to capitalize on their strategic position in the trade chain in order to monitor and control the transboundary movement of illegal wildlife products.

Improving the business environment through reform and innovation: a look at recent changes in China regarding the administration of rules of origin
20-11-2021

China Customs plays a key role in the administration of rules of origin, from their formulation to their implementation. Insiders who follow trade and Customs reforms in China may have noticed the emergence, in recent years, of new expressions and terms in this domain, such as “self-service printing of certificates of origin”, the Electronic Origin Data Exchange System (EODES) and “intelligent examination”. This article explains each of these terms.

The fall and partial rise of EU-US trading relations
13-11-2021

In spite of recent challenges, the EU-US trading relationship is underpinned by deeply integrated economies. The European Commission website describes this relationship as defining world trade and contributing as much as 40% to world GDP. Despite both the EU and the USA being modern developed economies, competition for global market share in addition societal changes brought about by an increase in globalisation has influenced trade policy. This has been particularly evident during the Trump presidency. This article tracks this difficult spell that we look to be emerging from and looks forward to what is hoped will be a détente in trade tensions between the two trading powerhouses on either side of the Atlantic Ocean.

Governments should consider waiving taxes on transport costs until we are back to “normal”
06-11-2021

The exponential increase in transport costs over the past few months has placed a strain on importers and on economic recovery. One solution would be for governments to waive taxes on these costs. In Israel, the law already allows for such an exemption in the case of special circumstances beyond the importer’s control.
