Declare goods to customs when exported via the Internet

If you trade or transport goods across borders, you must observe special regulations. One of them is to properly declare the goods to customs. For this purpose, an electronic export declaration is required from a certain value of goods or a certain trade volume. The customs declaration is used, among other things, to monitor exports (export control).

Export declarations are processed via ATLAS, the "Automated Tariff and Local Customs Settlement System". In addition to special software for the ATLAS Export IT procedure, you can also use the "Internet Export Declaration Plus" (IAA-Plus) web application. With IAA-Plus, you submit your application electronically with a signature. This registration is reminiscent of an e-mail that can be generated automatically via an interface.

The IAA Plus is aimed at companies that

  • export rarely or few goods,
  • export goods very frequently under the simplified procedure or lodge a simplified export declaration,
  • submit a simplified export declaration as a subcontractor in direct representation,
  • cannot or do not want to purchase your own ATLAS software,
  • do not want to involve an ATLAS service provider or customs office.
