Inconsistent custom procedures affecting exports to Thailand

in Thailand

Trade barrier summary

Thailand's Ministry of Finance Customs Act B.E. 2560 (2017) repealed 24 previous versions or documentations of customs and border regulations. The Act specifies that "a calculation of duty for goods imported into the Kingdom shall be in accordance with a nature of the goods, a customs value, a corresponding customs tariff, and a duty rate at the time of the completion of importation." The Act also states that "any person desiring to know a customs value, an origin of goods, or a customs tariff may submit a request to the Director-General for an advance ruling."
These changing procedures and the inconsistent application of these, may cause challenges for UK businesses.
