Customs & Excise

Although EU membership has greatly simplified the intra-Community customs procedures for international trade, many new rules and regulations governing trade outside the EU now apply to the Czech Republic.

Non-compliance with these new rules can lead to severe financial consequences such as penalties for late payment of incorrectly applied customs tariffs, or being unable to recover import VAT. PwC' customs team provides you with the help and advice you on legislation and the correct application of customs duties and tariffs.
