In application of Article 13.1 of the EU Council Directive 2006/112/CE on the common system of the value added tax, all orders for goods and services provided by the WCO are invoiced exclusive of VAT since the WCO is regarded as non-taxable person in respect to the activities or transactions in which it engages as public authority within its scope of activity defined in the Convention of 15 December 1950 establishing a Customs Co-operation Council, even where it collects dues, fees, contributions or payments in connection with those activities or transactions.

WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement



The Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) is the product of almost 10 years of World Trade Organization (WTO) negotiations. It will be legally binding once two-thirds of the World Trade Organization Members accept it, on those Members that accept it.

Driven by the spectacular growth in global trade, and the urgency to reduce the time and cost of moving goods across borders, the TFA contains provisions for speeding up the movement, release and clearance of goods. It sets out best practice for cooperation between Customs and other stakeholders, and it contains provisions for technical assistance and support for nations who may need it.
