Customs Duties Refund to Increase Profits

Trading businesses in the UAE have to pay Customs duties on imported/exported goods. However, these Customs duties lower your business’s overall profit. However, companies often fail to claim the Customs duties refund offered by the Customs authority. 

Businesses fail to claim the refunds because most of them are unaware. Many lack the expertise due to complex documentation like Exit/Entry Certificates and complicated claim procedures.  This results in losing potential profits from refunds.

Eligibility Criteria for Customs Duty Refunds in Dubai

Dubai Customs allows 1% Customs duty refunds if the goods meet certain requirements, such as –

  • imported/exported through Dubai Customs
  • 5% Customs duty was paid
  • Goods are imported for resale in the UAE

Required Documents to File Customs Refund Claim

It is mandatory to submit the correct documents for the Customs refund claim. The following documents are required –

By Air

  • Exit/Entry certificate 
  • Copy of Export Declaration or Copy of Airway Bill

By Land

  • Exit/Entry certificate 
  • Copy of Export Declaration or Copy of Manifest

By Sea

  • Exit/Entry certificate 
  • Copy of Export Declaration 
  • Copy of Manifest or Copy of Bill of Lading

Import Declaration is applicable when

  • Import to local from a foreign country
  • Import to local from Customs Warehouse
  • Import to local from a Free Zone

If you want to amend the claim details, Dubai Customs allows that, too. You can also cancel the Customs refund claim if you think there is a mistake or for any other reasons. 

How the Customs Refund Disbursal Process Works

Refunds are automatically credited on the 30th day of the import declaration clearance. The refunds are credited to the same Customs duty/credit/debit account that was used to pay the Customs duty.

In case of E-payment or cash, the refund is received in a bank account that was registered with the Customs Code.
