Guarantees (Transit declaration)
If you do not know the value of the goods, you can use the estimate of the required guarantee amount calculated by the service as aid. The estimate is calculated based on the details you have provided, according to average price of the goods and the highest possible customs duty rate for the goods category. The calculation of the estimate requires that you have provided the commodity code.
The guarantee itemisation shows the estimated amounts of VAT and customs duties. If you are transiting excise products, you must calculate the amounts of customs duties and taxes due yourself. The service will not calculate an estimate.
You can also estimate the required guarantee amount yourself. You can use the Fintaric calculation tool in estimating the amount. When using the calculation tool, enter the value, commodity code and quantity of the goods to get an estimate of the required guarantee amount.
