Why Use a Customs Consultant?

Customs consultants in South Africa frequently encounter importers who have difficulty understanding costs, meeting regulations, and paying cargo dues. Importers also struggle with misdeclaring goods, undervaluing goods, and providing false information on documents.

Some importers may overlook the complexity of customs procedures. Filling out forms for importing goods may seem easy to some people. However, they may not realize the complexities involved. These complexities include duty calculations, paperwork, and assigning correct tariff codes to items.

Businesses choose to work with licensed customs consultants to facilitate communication with customs authorities. These experts assist with communication and ensure they share all necessary information effectively with customs.


As consultants, we stay in contact with clients to answer questions and give updates on customs procedures. This helps prevent any confusion.

Don't Be Negligent With Customs

Instances of negligence can have serious consequences for importers, including:

  1. Delays in Clearing Goods: Non-compliance with regulations can lead to lengthy delays at the border while customs authorities investigate the shipment which affects your supply chain.

  2. Fines and Penalties: Failure to comply with regulations can result in significant fines and penalties from customs authorities.

  3. Seizure of Goods: In extreme cases, customs authorities may seize goods that are not properly declared or that violate safety regulations.

  4. Reputational Damage: Repeated customs issues can damage an importer's reputation and hinder their ability to conduct future international trade.
