Customs replaces From A for a REX rumber
If you import from certain developing countries, you may be able to get discount or exemption on import duties with a Form (A). This is a proof of origin. However, the customs recently announced that the Form A document will be replaced by a REX number on the commercial invoice. In most cases, they already use a REX number because the Form A already expired. Click here for more information and an overview of all countries when the REX number is valid. An addition to the table in the link above. When the date “end of the transition period” has expired and there is no date filled in at “effective application date of the REX system”, then there is no preference (discount) possible with a Form A or REX number. Keep this in mind when entering the goods.
