Declaration for export
Making an export declaration is necessary for a buyer or seller of products, depending on the conditions of supply to Incoterms 2000 (condition EXW, if the foreign trade contract is not specified). Typically, the buyer transfers the obligation to design their declaration to the carrier or freight forwarder.
Declaration for export is a document that is made out at the time of export during the customs clearance, before removal of the goods into the territory of other states.
The declaration must include properties of the product, sender’s data, the address of the recipient, the consignment of the goods, product certificates, declaration form.
For registration of CARNET TIR – the document which is required when goods cross the border, the export declaration must be closed. The customs authorities are provided with a copy of the export declaration with a barcode, as well as an individual number of the export document.
Foreign suppliers need a correct declaration for export, confirming the stated zero rates of VAT.

In the EU, all export declarations are electronically registered. Forwarders and suppliers have access to the European server where the registration of the export pre-clearance declaration for the goods is made.

In the process of import customs clearance, the export declaration is also required quite often. It is necessary to confirm the declared customs value of the goods imported. Often foreign suppliers unwillingly provide Russian exporters with this document. That is why it is recommended to write the obligations on registration of this document in foreign trade contract. If the contract includes the obligations of the supplier to provide the declarations for export, you need to take care of getting it in advance.
