If you are a manufacture or sales manager, shipping goods for exhibitions and trade shows, you have probably already heard of Carnet ATA and its benefits.
The ATA Carnet (Admission Temporaire/Temporary Admission) is a temporary export-import and international customs document. It is used to clear customs in some countries and territories without paying duties and import taxes on goods that will be re-exported within 12 or 6 months (for exhibition and fairs goods).
Main advantages of ATA Carnet:
- Save money, because you won’t have to pay duties and import taxes on goods that will be re-exported.
- Save time, because an ATA Carnet will facilitate temporary import and re-import procedures.
- Facilitate re-entry into a country by providing proof to customs that the goods originated from that country.
- Can be used several times in multiples countries during its period of validity if the same items are shipped.
A Carnet may not be used in all counties and for all goods. Every country has its own demands and restrictions for permanent and temporary entrance of goods. For instance, some countries have very long clearance examination for dry goods or wooden accessories. There are lots of traps and pitfalls in such shipments.
