When you order goods under DDP terms, the seller bears almost all the responsibility
When you order goods under DDP (delivered duty paid) terms, the seller bears almost all the responsibility during the entire delivery process. The seller is responsible for all the costs and risks that occur when the goods are delivered to the agreed address. The seller also ensures that the goods are ready for unloading and answers for the export and import formalities as well as for all the duty and tax costs.
When the goods are cleared through customs, the declaration is always submitted by a company established in the EU, that is, not by the seller. However, the company that submits the customs declaration is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the information given in the declaration, for the the authenticity, accuracy and validity of any document supporting the declaration as well as, in practice, for the customs debt (depending on the type of representation).
When DDP terms (+ place of destination in Finland) are applied, the sales price includes the transport and insurance costs as well as the taxes and charges levied upon import. When the customs value is determined, the taxes and charges levied upon import as well as the the transport and insurance costs incurred within the customs territory of the EU can be deducted from the sales price.
