Customs duties

The subject area deals with all levies linked to the movement of goods between the EU and the rest of the world. Our practice focuses on advising and representing clients with regard to import duties, of which the prototype is customs duties. In addition, there are national taxes levied by reference on the occasion of border crossing (turnover tax on imports an special excise duties on goods such as coffee, alcohol, energy products, etc.), whose economic significance far exceeds the volume of customs duties. Although embedded in global and supranational structures characterised by a variety of special features, our lawyers’ proven tax and tax law know-how remains an indispensable tool in gaining the optimal solution for customs cases.
