In my last article,I have told you how important it is about the paperwork for international trade.Today,I would tell you some thing about the key document.

Making sure you have the right documentation is a vital part of international trade. Thorough, accurate paperwork minimises the risk of problems and delays.

  • There should be a clear written contract between buyer and seller, including details of exactly where goods will be delivered. 
  • Specific documents may be needed to get the goods through customs and to work out the right duty and tax charges. There may be requirements both for the country the goods are being exported from and the country they are being imported into. 
  • Documentation is needed to cover the transport of the goods and insuranceduring the journey. 
  • The right paperwork can be an important part of the payment mechanism.

It's important to co-operate with your counterpart on getting the paperwork right. For example, if you're shipping goods to a customer overseas, they should tell you what paperwork they require at their end. If you are dealing with a non-English speaking country, it can be a good idea to provide one set of commercial documents in the local language.

You may want to get help with handling paperwork. Many businesses use the services of a freight forwarder or import agent.A good forwarder will help you a lot.

Any question,please feel free to ask me,I would try my best you help you. Also,I would update my new article about the international trade.

Good Luck~
