Managed Customs Services

Audits & Authorisations

Are you paying unnecessary duties and taxes on your consignments? Are your processes optimised? Take advantage of all of the cost-saving opportunities available to traders.

Skip the complex application process

Customs authorisations allow cost savings in terms of customs duty suspensions, exemptions, drawbacks, or simplified procedures—but applying for them can be a long and complicated task.​ C4T’s Managed Customs Services (MCS) team will assist with applications and recurring audits to secure and retain special authorisations. At the same time, we’ll conduct informal internal audits and analysis of your data to identify further cost-saving opportunities.

AEO certification

Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status allows companies to take advantage of simplified procedures, reduced time-critical customs controls, and the privilege of lower guarantees—but certification is a rigorous process.​ The C4T MCS team complements the CAS AEO tool to help you: 

  • Prepare and analyse your self-assessment 

  • Ensure your application meets AEO requirements 

  • Submit the questionnaire and annexes for approval of authorisation

  • Advise and assist in AEO audits by customs authorities
