What Is A Customs Broker?

A customs broker is a legal entity that carries out indirect customs representation in connection with the import, export or transit of goods and means of transport to the customs territory. Indirectly, the customs representation acts on its behalf and by the instruction of the person acting on behalf of the person represented for his benefit. The customs broker carries out its activities in accordance with the Customs Code and the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Azerbaijan No.17 dated January 23, 2014. A customs broker may be a declarant under a contract with the owner of goods and vehicles crossing the customs border. In the course of customs control and customs clearance, the customs broker shall carry out all the duties and shall bear the same responsibility as the person conveying goods independently from the customs border. The relations of the customs broker with the persons represented are regulated by the agreement concluded between the parties in accordance with the Civil Code of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
