In accordance with the applicable customs regulations the shipment of goods or documents outside of the EU is subject to declaration. This means that shipments have to be accompanied by a commercial invoice or a pro forma invoice.
A commercial invoice is drawn up if the goods have commercial value.
A pro forma invoice is drawn up if the goods have no commercial value.
Whether it's a commercial invoice or a pro forma invoice, the document indicates the consignor and consignee, a full description of the contents of the shipment and details of their value. It is then signed by the consignor, who sends the original and three copies with the parcel.
We have prepared an online form for you here. This will enable you to create your commercial invoice or pro forma invoice and print it out on your company stationery.
