A commercial invoice is a document used in foreign trade. It is used as a customs declaration provided by the person or corporation that is exporting an item across international borders. Although there is no standard format, the document must include a few specific pieces of information such as the parties involved in the shipping transaction, the goods being transported, the country of manufacture, and the Harmonized Systemcodes for those goods.
A commercial invoice must also include a statement certifying that the invoice is true, and a signature.
A commercial invoice is used to calculate tariffs, international commercial terms (like the Cost in a CIF) and is commonly used for customs purposes.
Usually, we will reduce the value on the commercial invoice to avoid a high tax for you, but in some countries,the Customs will check the real value,if you are from these countries,please must contact us.
