Export is an important part of international trade. Due to the expansion of the share of exported goods and the geography of importing countries, Ukrainian enterprises increase turnover and employment, which has a beneficial effect on the economy and welfare of the state.

What is an export? Who can export?

Export – the export of goods outside the customs territory of the country. According to the current legislation, an exporter can be:

  • individual entrepreneur;
  • entity;
  • public association or organization;
  • joint venture registered in Ukraine.

State authorities consider an entity to be an exporter if:

  • official registration and bank account;
  • electronic digital signature;
  • customs accreditation.

For the export of any product, customs clearance of goods is required. The export of certain types of products (intellectual property, cultural goods, agricultural and livestock products, etc.) requires additional permission from individual government agencies.

Each state imposes a ban on the export of certain types of products. The exporter must be familiar with all the requirements of the customs authorities and the specifics of the process.

To speed up the process of exporting goods outside the customs territory, the exporter uses a special employee who understands the intricacies of customs clearance, or uses the services of a customs broker.

Procedure for registration of export in Ukraine

The export procedure consists of several stages. To start the procedure, the owner of the cargo or his representative applies to the customs authorities.

Article 247 of the “Customs Code” allows you to send appeals both to checkpoints across the customs border of Ukraine and to subdivisions of the governing bodies of customs.

Upon receipt of the application, the state authorities check:

  • whether the goods are allowed to be exported outside the country;
  • whether the documents for export are correctly executed;
  • has the owner paid the necessary fees?

If necessary, the cargo passes radiological, phytosanitary and other types of control. After checking the documents and physical examination, the customs authorities allow the goods to be taken out of Ukraine.

The main problems of customs clearance of goods in Ukraine

Customs clearance is a complex procedure that requires special training. As a rule, exporters face the following problems:

  • Ignorance of the sequence of the clearance procedure, lack of experience in communicating with customs officers and, as a result, loss of time.
  • Lack of all necessary documents for export. For registration, two packages are required: documents confirming the owner’s right to the cargo, conducting foreign economic activity and a declaration of intent to export the goods, as well as documents characterizing the cargo (certificates, licenses, etc.). Some types of goods require non-tariff regulation or special permits.
  • Errors in filling out documents. Legislative and regulatory requirements change regularly. The owner allows inaccuracies in the classification of goods, designation of the country of origin of the goods, calculation of the cost.
