Customs services in Kazakhstan

We are where your business is

Our company provides services aimed directly at assisting clients in the understanding and practical application of existing statutory rules and regulations governing the import and export of goods.

The Deloitte Customs Group was founded within the framework of Deloitte in order to enable us to offer our clients a multilateral approach to their business needs and provide them with high quality consulting services in the field of customs legislation.


Kazakhstan’s international trade relations have been growing steadily, with an important factor in that growth being the country’s membership of the Eurasian Economic Union with Belarus, Russia and Armenia.

Generally speaking, international trade development, including integration within the Common Economic Area and Eurasian Economic Union, provides companies with new business opportunities and means they are continuously required to make coordinated decisions on customs regulation. In practice, the main challenges for businesses are understanding and being able to apply new customs legislation provisions and complying with them.

Businesses always need to be aware of recent amendments to customs legislation and ensure they keep up with any changes as part of their successful operating within the framework of foreign economic activities. By doing so, they minimise any risks related to the payment of customs duties and taxes.

Our customs experts ready to help you in any customs regulation issues according to both Kazakhstan and Eurasian Economic Union customs legislation. We will help you to understand the issues  related to customs value and customs payments and taxes, the application of various customs procedures and non-tariff regulation measures, in matters of intellectual property, and other customs issues.

Keep up to date with the latest changes and trends in Kazakhstan customs law here.
