b) What are the ways to make Customs’ work more efficient?
Exercise 9. Read the text to check your answers.
The way in which the major Customs’ responsibilities are discharged varies. For example, if Customs can identify goods, they are best placed to detect and interdict illicit imports and exports. If they look for goods that were not declared, they are also good at rummaging vehicles, craft and containers. If they have access to intelligence, they can use the information not only for revenue purposes. The principles of Customs work are eminently flexible. Today, when they track down dangerous material, the tools may have changed, but the attitude – being curious about anything new – is the same.
To many it would seem that Customs is interested in goods only. There is the notion, often prevailing in transition countries that Customs looks after goods and another agency after people. This makes a lot of sense – in theory, but what can often result is that, in order to detect illegal immigrants, immigration authorities may also want to look at vehicles, and the next step is to look at the goods which the vehicles carry. Unless carefully managed, the end result is at best a duplication of effort and controls.
Customs can collect, at no extra cost, everything that is due on goods and vehicles crossing the border. Customs use the same assessment and collection mechanisms for whatever duty is collected, as these are typically based on:
(i) the value of the goods,
(ii) their characteristics, and
(iii) the characteristics of the means of transport.
This makes Customs a very cost-effective agency.
