Given the magnitude of EU imports every year, it is important that the value of such commerce is accurately measured for the purposes of:
- economic and commercial policy analysis.
- application of commercial policy measures.
- proper collection of import duties and taxes, and
- import and export statistics.
The EU applies an internationally accepted concept of ‘customs value’.
The value of imported goods is one of three ‘elements of taxation’ that provides the basis for the assessment of the customs debt, which is the technical term for the duty to be paid, the other ones being the origin of the goods and the customs tariff.
