THE E-COMMERCE INDUSTRY IS CONSTANTLY EXPANDING WHILE TAX RULES RELATED TO E-COMMERCE ARE CHANGING

EU has introduced changes that affect all B2C sales within and towards the EU domain. As of 1st of July 2021. end consumers are also affected. In some cases, they will have to pay VAT to the courier or postal operator to deliver small-value shipments.
New optional import schemes applicable for EU and non-EU sellers are introduced under IOSS (Import One-Stop-Shop) and OSS (One-Stop-Shop). If the new import scheme is applied by an online store that sells goods, the company must add a local VAT rate.

CUSTOMS CLEARANCE 

We can accept goods directly from your suppliers both from EU and non EU, and store them securely in our modern, spacious warehouses.

In case your supplier is located outside of EU, SMS can help out with the import customs clearance and pay for the VAT and duties on your behalf. Financing VAT is charged in accordance with our general price list.

CUSTOMS BONDED WAREHOUSE

Clients who do not want to clear their whole stock use our customs bonded warehouse where their goods stay non-customs cleared. Swiss mail solutions can also ship the goods, not customs cleared in transit, to final customers outside the European Union. This way, you can save on unnecessary import VAT and duties.

As an intermediary swiss mail solutions can customs clear part of your orders to the European Union in bulk and then forward them to the final recipients. Thus your customers do not have to pay additional cash-in fees to the local postal operator. Additionally, non-cleared part of your orders would be shipped in transit to final customers located outside of the European Union.
