SIOUX

Introduction

The Customs Administration of the Slovak Republic offers the public the service „Procurement of information regarding the settlement of commitments“ through the medium of its application SIOUX, which is at the disposal of employees of the Customs Administration at every customs workplace. The abovementioned service is related with the discharge of goods in customs procedures, which is conditional on the settlement of the allocated customs debt to the customs office.

Customs debt can be settled resp. ensured in various ways, for example: non-cash payment or pledged resources on the account of the customs office or a pledge in the bank or a bank guarantee or a letter of guarantee underwritten by insurance. Customs Administration of the Slovak Republic steps forward as the acceptor of the customs debt. Customs debt is understood as the sum of the importation payment (customs debt in importation) or the sum of the export payment (customs debt in export), which is applicable on specific goods in its import or export according to customs regulations.

The necessary condition for placing goods under a declared customs procedure is the allocation of the settlement of the customs duty to the account of the customs office and receipt of the statement from the bank account which the customs office has in the State Treasury. The period of processing payments including receipt of the statement from the account of the Customs Administration can take two days or more.

Time is an important aspect in placing goods under a declared customs procedure and the Customs Administration has come up with a solution, in which information regarding the payment can be obtained by the customs employee in 15 minutes. The basis of the solution is cooperation with contractual banks and operators which ensure the rapid and safe transfer of information regarding the settlement of liabilities from the account of the customs agent from the contractual bank through the operator through to the Customs Administration.
