#4 LEGAL COMPLIANCE - UP TO DATE MASTER DATA
The toughest part of customs clearance administration is, that customs clearance legislation always changes. You always have to keep track of changing rates and customs codes, or your declaration may be denied or worse, you can get a pretty big penalty for not providing the right information in the right format. If this wasn’t enough, not keeping up with the changes can result in late transports, lost income and other, pretty bad business consequences.

Thanks to the legal compliance of the software, you can be sure that it is always up-to-date and compatible with the current legislation. Whenever the laws are updated, the software is, too.

Thanks to the automatically updated master data included in the subscription services, you can be sure, that you are always using the right codes and exchange rates during administration in Clare. No mistake is possible to be made here.
