Import & Export Procedure

Understanding Import & Export Procedure

If you import goods from outside the European Union (EU), you or your agent must complete a customs declaration. This customs declaration must be made electronically using Revenue’s Automated Entry Processing (AEP) system. Some goods are prohibited and some are subject to conditions or may require a licence.  


To release your goods at import you or your agent must pay any charges (Customs Duty, Value-Added Tax (VAT), Excise Duty) due. You can do this by the approved deferred payment account or Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT).  


There are numerous Import and Export Procedures depending on the size and type of company you are and where the import/export is from/to. The type of goods being shipped will also have a bearing on the most beneficial and cost-effective procedure to follow.
