Commercial Invoice

It is vitally important that you understand what is required on a commercial invoice when sending goods to Ireland.

Should you miss any detail the paperwork will be rejected by customs and delays will ensue from this.

  1. Full product line list.
  2. Commodity codes for products (there must be full 10 digit codes).
  3. Manufacturer country of origin.
  4. Full importer and exporter details, including addresses and names.
  5. Valid EORI numbers for both import and exporter.
  6. Value of goods.
  7. Incoterms to be used (explained below).
  8. Invoice number.
  9. Total weight.

Incoterms (International Commercial Terms)

You must enter incoterms on your commercial invoice. This lets the customs department know who is responsible for paying any potential customs fees.

We have listed the two most common incoterms that are used.

  • DDP (Delivered Duty Paid)
    This will make the exporter responsible for any customs charges. This option must be used when sending to a residential address.

  • DAP (Delivered At Place)
    This option places the responsibility of customs costs onto the importer of the goods. The receiver of the goods will be contacted for payment of customs charges prior to delivery.

You must include on of the above incoterms when sending pallets to Ireland with PalletOnline.

Please note that delivery dates on our website are estimated and may be delayed slightly if customs do not pass through as quickly as possible.

If you are looking to send goods to Northern Ireland please proceed as usual.

We process the paperwork for you in this case.

You can use a postcode rather than county when sending goods to Northern Ireland.
