Deloitte's customs and global trade specialists around the world can help businesses establish an international business strategy designed to manage costs and global trade regulatory requirements while leveraging innovative technology solutions.
The increasing digitalisation of compliance and reporting obligations requires businesses to manage and report their customs and global trade activities electronically. Real time self-assessment and control checks are becoming standard.
Deloitte specialists develop customs and global trade automation strategies that can identify opportunities for simplification and efficiency, analyse data and manage the risks, and costs associated with customs and global trade management and reporting.
Deloitte’s customs and global trade specialists work alongside technology specialists to provide a unique, holistic perspective on customs and global trade automation strategies. Our professionals have helped many clients develop tailored solutions that have been implemented without disruption to ongoing compliance or core business activities.
Under European Customs law, companies can apply to be certified as Authorised Economic Operators (AEO). The aim of AEO is to make customs authorities and certified businesses jointly responsible for safe and secure cross-border transactions. An AEO-certified company will be recognised as being compliant and trustworthy in customs transactions.
Deloitte’s AEO-Digiscan can help businesses understand whether they are in a position to apply for AEO certification. Periodically executing the self-assessment using AEO-Digiscan allows for businesses to evaluate whether the requirements for the AEO certification are still met.
