Import Procedures in Ireland
Importation of products from another EU state is no longer required to make a customs entry. There is requirement to complete an Intrastate supplementary declaration if EU imports exceed an annual value threshold.
Importing goods from outside the European Union need to be declared by making an entry and delivering to Customs. Approved traders and agents can input this data directly into Customs' computerized entry processing system, known as Direct Trader Input.
As part of the "SAFE" standards advocated by the World Customs Organization, the European Union has set up a new system of import controls, the "Import Control System", which aims to secure the flow of goods at the time of their entry into the customs territory of the EU. This control system, part of the Community Program eCustomer, has been in effect since January 1, 2011. Since then, operators are required to pass an Entry Summary Declaration to the customs of the country of entry, prior to the introduction of goods into the customs territory of the European Union.
Ireland applies EU tariffs that are based on the international Harmonized System of product classification.
When importing goods you must pay any charges of duty, VAT, levies, which are liable under Irish or EC law. You can defer paying most import charges for an average of 30 days. To be approved for deferment, you must meet certain rules and agree to pay by direct debit.
Excise taxes are levied on a limited number of products: gasoline, diesel fuel, spirits, beer, wine, bottled water, cider, tobacco, motor vehicles, liquid petroleum gas. The excise rates vary depending on the products. The tax is imposed whether the goods are manufactured in Ireland or imported from EU or non-EU countries.
