iran custom terms and tariffs

terms in Iran custom duty and procedures

It is predicted that until 2020 the share of international trade of GDP will grow up to 50 percent for most countries. Now this is equal to 30%. Countries effort to accept and perform international commitments for joining to WTO. This is for move on the way with world trade.

One steps for that, is making clearly lows and legal duties for AEOs(Authorized Economic Operators) and empower people acting in trade. According to Kyoto Revised Convention, AEOs (traders, brokers and good owners) have most commitment and responsibilities in international trade. Kyoto’s standards have two goals: custom to custom communications and trade standardization. Kyoto convention attempt to reduce costs of trades and it depends on cooperating customs and Merchants in the framework of mutual benefits. In this convention, customs committed to provide clear information for AEOs and trying to eliminate existing differences in customs procedures of various countries.

Therefore, I have decided to write rules, duties (as taxes and tariffs) and procedures of the custom of Iran to become foreign merchants familiar with that. this section assigned to terms and idioms.

There is two initial function in custom: the first is: execute rules, controls and tariffs (as duties). The second function is facilitating trade that WCO is concentrated on. The shape below is to draw summary of the custom patch:
