Use customs warehousing to postpone or avoid import duties

A bonded warehouse, also known as a customs warehouse, can help you to improve cash flow temporarily and allow to inspect your cargo before a customs procedure is registered. When you store your goods in a customs warehouse, you don’t have to pay taxes or duties temporarily until you want to move your goods within the union.

This can be especially helpful if you receive a large shipment from outside the EU, as it allows you to postpone paying taxes and duties until the merchandise is sold. It works similarly to a customs-free zone procedure that also may help you to defer taxes and duties.
