Comprehensive guarantee reservation status

In the “My details” service, you can check your company’s comprehensive guarantee reservation status. The share reserved from the guarantee is displayed as a percentage figure. 

The following are included in the reserved guarantee: 

  • guarantee reservations upon customs clearance for release into free circulation, inward processing and temporary admission
  • long-term guarantee reservations for customs warehousing authorisations, temporary warehousing authorisations and end-use authorisations. 

Example:

A customer company has a comprehensive guarantee authorisation, customs warehousing authorisation, and a payment deferment authorisation.

The company has submitted a comprehensive guarantee of 10 000 euros to Customs. Of this guarantee, 7 000 euros is available for reservations involving release into free circulation. The guarantee reservation for customs warehousing is 3 000 euros.

If no amounts are reserved from the guarantee for release into free circulation, the reserved share of the comprehensive guarantee is 30 %, that is, only the amount of 3 000 euros reserved for the customs warehousing authorisation. As a result, 7 000 euros of the comprehensive guarantee is still available.

If, in addition to the 3 000 euros reserved for the customs warehousing authorisation, the amount of 1 200 euros has been reserved from the guarantee for release into free circulation, the share reserved from the comprehensive guarantee is 42 % ((3 000 € + 1 200 €) / 10 000 € x 100). The amount of 5 800 euros is available from the comprehensive guarantee.
