The EU has a customs union agreement with Turkey which involves the import and trade in most so-called industrial products. Industrial products imported from Turkey are entitled to duty-free treatment if the goods have been in free circulation in Turkey. The country of origin of the products is irrelevant. Justification for duty-free treatment of customs union products upon import, is proven with an A.TR. goods certificate.
Goods subject to charge and free goods are declared with separate customs declarations.
The Import Declaration Service can be used by both Customs’ cash and registered credit customers. Businesses log in to the service using Suomi.fi identification and authorisations. A person who submits customs declarations needs a mandate granted by the company’s CEO or by another person with signatory rights or by a person authorised by either of these persons to grant a mandate. If a business wants to use a representative company, it can authorise the representative in Suomi.fi or choose the manner of authorisation. The Suomi.fi mandate theme used in this service is “Customs clearance”.
The Katso ID can, for the time being, still be used by businesses that cannot use Suomi.fi identification yet. The Katso ID must have the authorisation contained in the role “CUSTOMS-Customs clearance”. The Finnish Tax Administration grants Katso IDs free of charge.
