As part of efforts to streamline and improve cargo clearance, the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) announces for the information of Stakeholders that from THURSDAY, 5th September 2013, the paperless transaction system will be implemented at the KIA.
Highlights of the enhancements are limited to:
1. Application & Receipt of FCVR (Valuation Reports)
Declarants and Importers are required to apply for FCVR (Valuation Reports) from BIVAC but will receive soft copies of report instead of printed reports.
2. Conversion of Attached Documents to Electronic
Declarants are required to convert Attached Documents (eg. Invoices) to Electronic format and attached onto the Unique Consignment Reference (UCR).
3. Submission of Trade Documents to Customs Compliance
Declarants are no longer required to submit declarations and attached documents to Customs Compliance in person. Compliance Officers will process Declarations after Payment of Duties and Taxes are effected.
