Binding tariff information from the HZA Hanover

Companies may submit an application for binding tariff information to the Hauptzollamt Hannover. With such information the customs tariff number is bindingly established. This information is binding for companies and customs authorities alike for three years. Accordingly, for the whole of Germany and Europe the customs tariff number shall be fixed at the request of the Company.

If companies do not agree with their information, they must object to the main customs office in Hanover and, if necessary, also take legal action against this main customs office.

Frequently, customs inspectors also insist that companies organise a tariff information service at the HZA Hannover. In this respect, the main customs office in Hanover is, so to speak, the key office for the determination of customs tariff numbers.

In some cases, however, such tariff information does not make sense, so that benefits and risks should be carefully weighed with legal assistance before applying.
