DOCUMENTARY REQUIREMENTS

COMMERCIAL CONSIGNMENTS: Commercial Invoice must be signed by shipper and is required “in Original” to apply for Customs clearance. The Commercial Invoice must be IN SPANISH (In case of invoices issued in a different language, a translation will have to be rendered dully signed by the consignee).

A proper Commercial Invoice must contain AT LEAST the following information:

  • Full name and address of both shipper and consignee
  • Importer ID and/or or TAX ID of the Consignee ( Consult with a REXCARGO Import Specialist If not sure or not available )
  • Date and Place of Loading,
  • Country of Origin of the goods.
  • INCOTERM (2010)
  • Quantity of packages,
  • Marks numbers and kind(s) of package(s)
  • Contents of each package, with detailed description of each article Including HTS Code
  • Net weight of each kind of article and gross weight of each package in kilograms
  • Unit price and total of each article
  • CIF and FOB value and specification of transportation – and other charges

Prior to clearance, the consignee will be required to sign in the reverse side of the invoice a declaration of acceptance of the information contained in such invoice. Import License may be required for certain goods. When in doubt, please consult with a REXCARGO Import specialist.

SAMPLES:

  • Value USD 25.00 or less: Pro Forma Invoice.
  • Value over USD 25.00: (handled as Commercial consignments)
IMPORT CLEARANCE PROCESS

A Unique Customs Declaration form (DUA) will be drafted and processed for every import and export consignment.

The process of clearance depends on the type of cargo and means of arrival.

  • FCL and Perishable, high value, Live Animals and other sensitive shipments may opt for “anticipated clearance” conducted at the port of entry upon arrival. A request for such will be processed provided it is presented at least One (1) working day prior to shipment arrival at the first port of entry. Anticipated clearance process is a discretionary recourse exclusive of customs authorities and therefore it is not guaranteed that all requests will be granted.
  • LCL and regular air cargo will have to be transported unto a customs bonded facility for manifest breakdown and arrival declaration.

Storage and Handling charges for the bonded facility process may apply. Please consult with a REXCARGO Import Specialist for country/mode specific details.

IMPORT CLEARANCE TIMES

STANDARD CLEARANCE:  If import documents and permits are in order, this process can be executed between two(2) to six(6) hours upon shipment entry within the customs system.

FREE TRADE ZONE: Free Trade Zone shipments are not cleared but rather transferred from a port or bonded facility to the Free Trade Zone premises as applicable, this process is usually faster than a standard clearance.

SMALL PACKAGES (COURIER): Any shipment with a CIF value of USD Five Hundred dollars ($500.00) or less can be cleared in an expeditious manner provided all documents are in order and they are transported under an “Express Delivery” manifest and declared as such prior to arrival. For more information on this modality please contact your REXCARGO import specialist.

CUSTOMS INSPECTIONS

Documentary and Physical Inspections: If a consignment is “flagged” by customs for physical or documentary inspection, one can expect a “reasonable” delay, usually not more than a few hours.

An importer and origin station (in the case of foreign partner routed shipments) will be informed accordingly and shall be able to follow-up on the process through WebTracker.

DUTIES AND TAXES

All commercial shipments are subject to Sales or VAT Tax payable upon clearance and most consignments are subject to import duties. The percentage of the import duty to be applied depends on the nature of the goods. Shipments from countries where a Free Trade Agreement is applicable may waive some or all import duties. Please consult the Free Trade Agreement section below.

Free Trade Zone shipments are exempt of tax and duties unless the shipment consists of material that will not be utilized/consumed within the authorized Free Trade Zone premises. Usually Free Trade Zone shipments liable for payment of duties and taxes consist of promotional material such as caps, T-shirts, etc. Please consult with the REXCARGO Import specialist for details.

Import duties can be consulted online at the following link for the Tariff Analysis Online (TAO) facility provided by WTO .

DESTINATION FEES AND CHARGES

REXCARGO will charge for destination services in accordance with the previously agreed tariff.

  • COLLECT MASTERBILLS WILL BE REJECTED UNLESS PRIOR AUTHORIZATION FROM REXCARGO IS OBTAINED.
  • Collect Charges on “House Bills” will accrue a fee of 3% payable by the Consignee.
  • 3rd Party Disbursements will accrue a fee of 4% payable by the contracting Party.

In all cases, carriers and co-loaders will charge destination fees for an “assortment” of services such as:

  • Document turnover
  • Customs Formalities
  • Shipment transfer
  • Bonded warehouse
  • Terminal Fee
  • Handling

These fees are usually not contemplated in the negotiation at origin and may become an “unpleasant surprise” to the consignee or shipper (depending on the Incoterm ). These destination charges (especially Bonded Warehouse) in some cases may be as high as the International freight charges and therefore should be considered always when sending cargo to our network.

REXCARGO STRONGLY recommends that prior to shipping, a REXCARGO Import Specialist is consulted to verify the list of “approved” carriers and “co-loaders” to propose an alternative or at least visibility with respect to destination charges. It is always best if the destination charges are “negotiated” at origin and that REXCARGO is informed of the agreed fees prior to the arrival of the consignment.

FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS

Central America is conformed by Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador while Panamá is considered part of South America.

Throughout the years, the Central American countries have subscribed a number of Bilateral and multilateral trade agreements as well as preferential treatment agreements with many countries. If you believe your goods are eligible for preferential duty treatment, please consult with a REXCARGO Import/Export Specialist. You can also verify Trade and Preferential agreement status >HERE<

CERTIFICATES OF ORIGIN

Certificate of Origin (CO) is an important international trade document attesting that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country in accordance with the rules of origin negotiated between the countries participating in the applicable trade agreements. COs also constitute a declaration by the exporter. With the introduction of this document, the importer in the country of destination may request preferential tariff treatment accorded to the goods. There are two certification schemes and within each particular treaty, it is established which of these two apply and how :

  1. Self-certification issued by exporter, producer or importer (as applicable)
  2. Controlled certification which is issued by an officially designated authority.

The countries of Central America have all negotiated individual and collective Free Trade Agreements with other countries or regions. It is very important to consider that adherence to the “letter” (form) of a Free Trade Agreement is key to maintaining its benefits and in the case of the certificates of origin, in almost every case, the actual format of the document is established as an integral part of the agreement and therefore, to be acceptable, it must comply 100% with the format of reference incorporated in the agreement.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING CERTIFICATES OF ORIGIN

Certificates of Origin (CO) are integral parts of the official agreement and therefore in many cases, there is a predetermined “Template” or “Format” that has to be utilized. Failure to adhere to the “exact” template specification may result in the elimination of the preferential treatment for a particular consignment. It is also worthy to consider that a revision of a CO may occur several years after the importation of the consignment and therefore, the reimbursement of the exempted amount and  heavy fines may apply retro-actively if a CO is rendered invalid. If you have doubts about this or any other issue regarding COs or Free Trade Agreements in general, please consult with a REXCARGO Import/Export specialist.

Envíos de muestra:

  • Valor USD 25.00 o menos: factura proforma.
  • Valor de más de USD 25.00: (manejado como envíos comerciales)

Una declaración de aduanas único (DUA) se elaborará y se procesa para cada importación y exportación.

PROCESO IMPORTACION:

El proceso de liquidación depende del tipo de carga y el método de transporte. Para mercancía Aérea, FCL/FTL, perecederos, carga de alto valor, animales vivos y otros envíos sensibles se puede optar por una “liquidación anticipada” que se llevaría a cabo en el puerto de entrada contra el arribo de la unidad de transporte.

Las mercancías que no sean sujeto de una “Liquidación Anticipada” así como la carga LCL/LTL y carga aérea regular tendrán que ser transportados a una instalación de depósito aduanero para la desconsolidación del manifiesto y declaración de llegada. la desconsolidación en un depósito aduanero podrá generar cargos por almacenamiento y manipulación. Por favor consulte con un especialista en importaciones de REX CARGO sobre los detalles que aplican para cada país.

Liquidación anticipada:

La solicitud de este tipo de beneficio será procesada siempre y cuando se presente por lo menos un (1) día hábil antes de la llegada del envío. El proceso de despacho anticipado es un recurso discrecional exclusivo de las autoridades aduaneras y por lo tanto no se garantiza que cada petición será concedida.

Liquidación Estándar:

Si los documentos de importación y permisos están en orden, este proceso puede ser ejecutado entre dos (2) a seis (6) horas después del ingreso de los datos del envío en el sistema aduanero. Envíos zona de franca no se nacionalizan, sino más bien son transferidos desde un puerto o instalación aduanera a las instalaciones de Zona Franca según sea el caso, este proceso suele ser más rápido que el estándar.

Pequeños paquetes o envíos tipo “courier”:

Cualquier envío con un valor CIF de USD quinientos dólares ($ 500.00) o menos se puede nacionalizar de manera expedita siempre que todos los documentos estén en orden y que se transporten al amparo de un manifiesto de “Mercancía de Entrega Rápida” y declarados como tales antes de la llegada. Para obtener más información sobre esta modalidad por favor contacte a su especialista en importaciones de REX CARGO.

Inspecciones documentales y físicas :

Si un envío está “marcado” por las aduanas para la inspección física o documental, se puede esperar un retraso “razonable”, por lo general no más de unas pocas horas. El destinatario y la estación de origen (en el caso de los envíos generados por un socio comercial extranjero) serán informados al respecto y deberán ser capaz de dar seguimiento sobre el proceso a través del “Webtracker” de REX CARGO.

Impuestos Aduaneros y Tasas:

Todos los envíos comerciales para la importación definitiva están sujetos a impuesto de ventas o IVA (Según aplique) mismo que deberá cancelarse contra la liquidación y la mayoría de los envíos están sujetos a derechos de importación. El porcentaje de los derechos de importación que debe aplicarse depende de la naturaleza de las mercancías.

Los envíos para las empresas operando en régimen de  Zona Franca están exentos de impuestos y derechos salvo que el envío consista de algún material que no se consume dentro de la Zona Franca. Por lo general, los envíos de Zona Franca obligadas al pago de derechos e impuestos consisten de materiales promocionales como gorras, camisetas, etc. Por favor, consultar con el especialista en importaciones de REX CARGO para más detalles.

REX CARGO cobrará por concepto de sus servicios en destino de conformidad con el tarifario y/o la cotización previamente acordados.

El tráfico de “Masters” por cobrar (Collect)  NO ES ACEPTABLE SIN PREVIA AUTORIZACION.

Los cargos por cobrar en los “House Bills” tendrán un recargo por concepto de “Collect Fee” del 3% a cobrarse al Consignatario.

Los pagos a terceros, tendrán un recargo del 4% a cobrarse a La Parte Contratante.

En todos los casos, los transportistas y los co-cargadores (co-loaders) exigirán cargos en destino para una “variedad” de servicios tales como:

  • Entrega de documentos
  • Tramites aduaneros
  • Transferencia de recinto
  • Almacenaje
  • Cargos por Terminal
  • Manejo

Estas tarifas por lo general no se contemplan en la negociación en origen y pueden convertirse en una “sorpresa desagradable” para el destinatario o remitente (en función del Incoterm ).

Estos cargos en destino en algunos casos pueden “igualar” los cargos de transporte internacional y por lo tanto se deben considerar siempre al enviar la carga a nuestra red.

Las consolidaciones tipo “Back to Back” son por lo general en las que el efecto de estos cargos se hace sentir más. REX CARGO recomienda encarecidamente que antes de su envío, un especialista de importación de REX CARGO sea consultado para verificar la lista de porteadores “aprobados” y “co-cargadores” y de esta manera ofrecer una alternativa o al menos la visibilidad con respecto a los cargos en destino.

Siempre es mejor si los cargos de destino se “negocian” en origen y que REX CARGO sea informado de las tarifas acordadas antes de la llegada del embarque.

América Central está conformado por Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala y El Salvador, mientras que Panamá tradicionalmente se ha considerado parte de América del Sur.

Un Certificado de Origen (CO) es un documento muy importante de comercio internacional que acredita que las mercancías en un embarque en particular han sido obtenidas, producidas, manufacturadas o procesadas en un país determinado de acuerdo con las normas de origen negociadas entre los países participantes en los acuerdos comerciales. Los CO constituyen también una declaración del exportador.

Con la presentación de este documento, el importador en el país de destino podrá solicitar que un trato arancelario preferencial sea concedido a las mercancías.

Hay dos sistemas de certificación y dentro de cada tratado en particular, se establece cuál de los dos se debe aplicar y cómo:

  1. Auto-certificación emitida por el exportador, productor o importador (en su caso)
  2. Certificación controlada que es emitida por una autoridad designada oficialmente.

Todos los países de América Central han negociado acuerdos de libre comercio individuales y colectivos con otros países o regiones.

Es muy importante tener en cuenta que la adhesión al  “pié de la letra” de un Tratado de Libre Comercio es clave para mantener sus beneficios y en el caso de los certificados de origen, en casi todos los casos, el formato real del documento se establece como una parte integral del acuerdo y por tanto, para ser aceptable, debe cumplir al 100% con el formato de referencia incorporado en el acuerdo.


NOTA IMPORTANTE!

Los Certificados de Origen (CO) son parte integral del acuerdo oficial y por lo tanto, en muchos casos, hay una “plantilla” o “Formato” predeterminado que tiene que ser utilizado. La falta de cumplimiento con la especificación de la plantilla de manera “exacta” puede resultar en la eliminación del tratamiento preferencial para un envío en particular. También es digno de tener en cuenta que la revisión de un CO puede ocurrir varios años después de la importación  y por tanto, el reembolso de la cantidad exenta, así como fuertes multas podrá aplicar de forma retroactiva si un CO se invalidase. Si tiene dudas acerca de este o cualquier otro tema relacionado con COs o tratados de libre comercio en general, por favor consulte con un especialista en importación y exportación en REX CARGO.
