Example Cross-border commuters by profession
You trade in fashion jewellery outside of Switzerland and have to retain maximum flexibility, especially in terms of liquidity. It is for just this kind of scenario that we have set up an Open Customs Warehouse (OCW). In this way we can keep your goods in stock without paying duty and tax, because they are not payable immediately. A shipment of top creations from China is already on its way to Switzerland. We act, on your behalf, as the point of contact for all the customs authorities. We declare the jewels after their sale to a buyer in Switzerland, or we draw up the necessary documents for their re-export to your customers abroad, so you do not incur the import duties twice. With an OCW, you can simply leave the software, know-how and small print to us.
