Did you know that you can save money by using the "Inward Processing" (IP) in the refinement and further processing of raw materials?

We show you how it works!

The Customs Procedure ”Inward Processing“

In inward processing raw materials from third countries (non-EU countries) are imported, here on-site refined/completed/assembled and then re-exported. To preserve the international competitiveness no import duties are collected on imported raw materials.

Inward processing – here as an example the sugar – allows for two options:

  • One option is to import sugar as raw material duty-free, to process it subsequently, and then to export the manufactured products also duty-free into non-EU countries (third countries). This approach is denoted as IM-EX-procedure.
  • In the second option finished products are exported into non-EU countries (third countries) directly. The sugar contained in the finished products (sugar equivalence) is imported subsequently duty-free EU-wide. This generally recommended approach is denoted as EX-IM-procedure.

This is, for example, in the confectionery industry of importance: the partly significant price differential or "price difference refund" suggests to use the "sugar finishing processes"!

clavisAveo: Simple Integration of Customs Clearance into SAP

As a rule customs procedures are extremely complex. With the use of the new clavis application clavisAveo the customs procedure “inward processing” becomes simple and safe. We provide you a lean and cost-effective SAP based solution that can be used and automated with only few expansions of your IT-system. Additionally we will assist you with the application and the electronic processing of the IP.

clavisAveo: Shortened Customs Inspection with Minimal Effort

The integration into SAP guarantees maximum flexibility – all necessary data are directly available. Additional data maintenance is hardly required. The software can be adjusted to new customs requirements with minimal effort.

Further on data entered are verified immediately. Thus, errors are detected at an early stage and not eventually later in the course of a customs inspection. All data like e.g. recipes and sugar quantities are stored audit-proof in the system for the purpose of the customs audit. This simplifies the process, allows for a fast billing or refund of quantities of sugar with the importer and shortens the customs inspections.
