Incoterms® (International Commercial Terms) are the rules for the use of domestic and international trade terms, published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). 

The rules are used to conclude contracts for the purchase of goods worldwide. They define the seller's and buyer's obligations regarding the risk of loss of or damage to the goods, costs and arrangement of transport and customs clearance

The rules are updated every 10 years. Incoterms® 2020 set out 11 rules. Learn the rules and their role in customs valuation by watching the video.

Overview of simplification on Customs valuation in the European Union
09-01-2021

In the EU, the “simplification for the determination of amounts being part of the Customs value of the goods” under the transaction value method allows operators to avoid the burden of a two-step declaration – i.e. a simplified declaration followed by a supplementary declaration – and to finalise Customs valuation declarations without delay in situations where there is no risk for the collection of import duties. Such simplifications are becoming increasingly relevant given the growing number of value elements, such as royalties or commissions, that cannot be quantified at the time of importation.

Focus of the CJEU: exclusive distribution compensation and customs value
06-01-2021

Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) took another decision regarding customs valuation and adjustment of transaction value. In this decision CJEU analysed legal importance of compensation paid for the right to exclusively distribute goods. CJEU concluded that such compensation was the condition of sale and thus must be reflected in the customs value of goods. The fact that compensation was agreed on in a separate contract (not in a sale-purchase agreement) and that it was limited in time did not change conclusions of the CJEU. It is yet another signal for the importers to carefully examine all the payments between them and the seller and evaluate their possible influence on customs value of imported goods.

Incoterms® 2020 sąlygų apžvalga (II dalis)
19-12-2020

Tarptautinių Incoterms taisyklių svarba prekybai yra neabejotina. Verslas jas taiko tarptautinėje prekyboje siekdamas išvengti netikėtumų ir rizikos dėl nenumatytų išlaidų bei ginčų. Prekybos įmonės turėtų įsitikinti, kad jos žino apie naujas Incoterms 2020 taisykles, peržiūrėti savo sutartis ir, reikalui esant, atlikti būtinus pakeitimus, galimai ir savo specialistų žinių tobulinimu pasirūpinti. Teisingas pristatymo sąlygų pasirinkimas taip pat palengvins muitinės formalumų atlikimą ir bus aiškūs atsakymai dėl sandorio vertės tikslinimo/ netikslinimo prekių gabenimo išlaidomis.
