Our documentation services cover everything including:
Export and Import Licence
A fundamental part of your shipping’s administration, an export licence must be obtained to export specific goods around the world and the same goes for importing, you need a licence to import goods from different countries. Without a licence you could see goods confiscated and this can result in fines and even prosecution.
Seaspace International can obtain a licence for you quickly and easily to ensure your goods hold the correct paperwork and get through customs and processing quickly and efficiently.
Letters of Credit
To reduce risk in international trade, Letters of Credit may be required for exchange between exporters and buyers. This acts as a formal, legally binding agreement and guarantees payment for the sellers and goods for the buyers, giving you peace of mind and protection when exporting goods.
Our expert team at Seaspace International can advise on raising these through your bank or other financial institutions to ensure a smooth transition of freight with minimal risk.
Certificates of Origin
A Certificate of Origin is an important international trade requirement that attests goods are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured and processed. It confirms the origins of the goods and ensures that the correct tariff rates are applied.
If you’re exporting goods internationally, then you’ll need a Certificate of Origin to prove where your goods have come from. Let the Seaspace team obtain a Certificate of Origin for you and help your freight tick every box.
