The UIO calls on freight forwarders to urgently apply for a digital signature
The UIO warns all customs agents – freight forwarders, to urgently submit a request to the ITA to obtain a digitally qualified signature, which will verify their transit customs declarations from August 1, 2022.
The Indirect Taxation Authority warns all customs agents – freight forwarders, to urgently submit a request to the ITA to obtain a digitally qualified signature, which will certify their transit customs declarations from August 1, 2022.
“At the moment, there are a large number of customs representatives who have not yet completed the procedure for issuing a digital qualified signature at the ITA. Those customs representatives who do not ensure the digital qualified signature of the Administration in time may experience delays in processing electronic transit applications.” , the ITA said.
We would like to remind you that from August 1, 2022, the application of the NCTS (New Transit Computerized System) at the national level will begin in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This specifically means that for all procedures for the transit of goods, customs declarations are submitted exclusively electronically to the system of the Indirect Taxation Authority, and each transit declaration must be certified by a new digital qualified signature.
The application for obtaining a digital qualified signature with the ITA is submitted to the competent regional center of the Administration where the taxpayer has its registered office, and the procedure for obtaining and using a digital qualified signature of the ITA is very simple.
Bosnia and Herzegovina must use the electronic transit procedure for one year at the national level, after which it can apply to become a full member of the NCTS Convention. Then, businessmen from BiH will have easier procedures with much smaller waits at all borders of the countries where the goods are transported. This specifically means saving time and money for the business community.
