National tax border declaration 

The national tax border declaration is used in the goods traffic between Åland and mainland Finland, when

  • goods are imported
  • goods are sent for processing or repair or they return after processing or repair
  • goods are transported temporarily across the tax border. 

For general instructions on completing a declaration, see the section “General information about completing a declaration”.

The sections of the national tax border declaration

The national tax border declaration consists of three sections: “Parties”, “Declaration header” (details common to the whole declaration) and “Goods items” (goods item-specific details).

Each section of the declaration is displayed separately in the service. You can move to the different sections of the declaration by clicking on the relevant button in the side navigation. 

VAT-registered importers and importers not registered for VAT provide some of the details in different sections. For example, a VAT-registered importer provides the total amount invoiced at declaration header level, whereas an importer not registered for VAT provides the transaction price at goods item level.
