What to mention on a commercial invoice?

The commercial invoice is necessary so that customs will know the exact details of your shipment.
Always state a value of at least 5 Euro, even if the shipment serves no commercial purpose.
An invoice requires the following details:

– Pick up address
– Shipping address
– A description of the goods
– The amount of goods
– Commercial value of the goods
– Country of origin of the goods
– VAT number (if applicable)
– HS-code

8. Place a total of six copies of the invoice on your shipment. Make sure that a customs official is able to clearly see it on the outside of the package.
