The customs clearance procedure requires a number of payments which, when made separately, take time and affect both the timing and the cost of customs clearance. As per the recommendations of the Agreement on Trade Facilitation, this step has been dematerialized and all banks are now connected to TradeNet’s payment module.
BNI Madagascar, Société Générale de Madagascar and Banque Malgache de l’Océan Indien have made additional developments and offer the possibility of a 100% electronic payment. Other banks are now developing similar offers of service to their customers.
The business or their declarant initiates the transfer order through the module. The latter is forwarded electronically to the relevant bank.
Once the payment has been made, the bank confirms by validating the transaction in the TradeNet Electronic One-stop shop Payment module.
Customs is notified in real time of the payments made, which it must take into account for releasing the goods.
