Germany represents the EU’s largest economy, and the fourth largest economy in the world. It is also among the top three global importers and exporters, following the United States and China. To expedite trade, CAS is connected to Germany’s Automatisiertes Tarif- und Lokales Zollabwicklungssystem (ATLAS) for export declaration filing, with import and transit declarations along with summary entry and arrival notifications soon to follow.
CAS is a centralised, collaborative platform designed to automate regional and worldwide customs declarations quickly and accurately, future-proofing your customs compliance. A CAS subscription combined with our Managed Customs Services for declarations is about half the cost of collaborating with customs brokers. Do you want to save costs while increasing efficiency?
Germany offers multiple ways to declare exports and CAS supports them all:
Simplified procedure (requires an authorisation issued by the central customs office)
Presentation outside of the customs premises
Single-state procedure ( for commodities up to €3.000)
Simplified declaration without formal authorisation in the simplified procedure
Simplified declaration without formal authorisation in the standard procedure
Simplified declaration without formal authorisation with presentation outside of the customs premises
The CAS Special Procedures module supports cost-saving Special Procedures that are often used by market-leading German companies as well as those trading with Germany. These include Customs warehousing (CWH), Inward Processing (IPR), Outward Processing (OPR), End Use, and Temporary Storage. This value-added module integrates with the CAS Declarations module to produce the declarations and inventory reporting necessary to claim customs duty and VAT savings allowed through Special Procedures.
CAS is built modularly, allowing you to start with Declarations functionality for immediate administrative cost savings and scale with value-added modules including Insights, Special Procedures, Master Data, and Origin Management that provide visibility into the totality of your customs operations and help reduce duty costs.
