Origin of goods

The correct procedure for conferring origin to the goods is a crucial step to get the appropriate customs declaration: the main issue is related to the suppliers’ long term declaration. Criminal and administrative penalties are strictly related. How to behave?

What is the correct origin conferring procedure? How to implement the origin conferring procedure in business processes?

Dual use – Dual use products

“Made” in labelling

The false or misleading statement on origin of goods. The consumer misled by the labelling: goods seized by the customs authority and the related criminal penalties. What are the possible remedies? How to implement the business procedures?

The processing carried out abroad, the outward processing traffic: is it possible to obtain a “Made in Italy” product? What are the elements to consider?

Embargo – Limitations to export

What are the prohibitions? What are the penalties? What are the required authorisations?

Tariff Classification

The tariff classification of goods represents a crucial element for a correct attribution of the origin and in general for the issuance of a correct customs declaration. What are the risks related to an incorrect classification? What are the necessary instruments to validate the tariff classification?


The delivery conditions of the goods represent a variable that must be carefully handled, and in order to avoid unpleasant and dangerous surprises, it is crucial to indicate the right one in the official documents. What is the correct term to choose?

Transfer pricing

“Transfer pricing” expression identifies the procedure used to determine the appropriate ‘transfer price’ when transferring the ownership of goods/services/intangibles via inter-company transactions. 

The transfer pricing procedure is widely used to determine the normal value of the prices or profits related to the transaction between two associated companies resident in Countries with different taxation rules (cross-border), i.e. two companies belonging to the same multinational.

The pricing agreed in international financial transactions between companies belonging to the same group, or connected to each other, is a sensitive area in two ways: direct taxes and customs duties. 

In the case of an inter-company purchase:

  • According to the Tax Agency, the price should not be increased as by doing so, the tax basis of assessment would result lower than the one expected in Italy.
  • According to the Customs Authority, the price should not be lessened with the sole purpose of lowering the customs duty when importing the goods.

Easyfrontier stands by your side to precisely determine the correct transfer price in inter-company transactions.
