The fuel surcharge is always calculated from the remuneration of shipping without VAT according to a valid Zásilkovna s.r.o. pricelist.

Do you want to send goods to end customers in any of the countries listed above with Zásilkovna? Then you will need the following:
Power of attorney for representation in customs proceedings
Data for completing the customs declaration
EORI is an identification number used for communication with the customs administration. It is assigned once and usually copies the VAT number. If you plan to send goods outside the EU, you should have an EORI number assigned for an indefinite period.
How to receive an EORI?
You can apply for an EORI number at your nearest customs office by submitting a completed application form. This can be downloaded from the website of the Customs Administration of the Czech Republic. The service is free of charge.
What is the procedure?
Contact our customs department at email@example.com.
Send us a power of attorney for indirect representation in customs proceedings and the assigned EORI number.
After checking the details, we will enable the submission of parcels outside the EU in the client interface.
And then there's nothing that can stop you from submitting your parcel!
Data for filling in the customs declaration
When submitting a parcel to a country outside the EU, you must first fill in
1. Method of Customs Clearance
Self-declaration (you have your own export document or EAD – Export Accompanying Document)
In case of this option, you need to fill in the MRN number related to the parcel and attach the EAD customs declaration and invoice as separate pdf files in the email you will send us.
Important: For parcels sent to Russia, the EAD must also be attached directly to the parcel.
Issuing a customs declaration via Zásilkovna
Don't have your own EAD? We will be happy to issue it for you. The fee for this service is CZK 100 for one EAD issued, including the first item of the customs declaration. If you have additional items, you will pay an extra CZK 25 for each of them. The issued document as well as the report on leaving the EU, which you can use for tax purposes, will be then uploaded into your client section for download.
Postal clearance (no EAD and no charges)
If you choose this customs clearance option, we do not provide you with any proof of exit from the EU.
The clearance options listed above are active depending on the carrier you choose and the services it provides. Exceptions apply to the following countries:
UK: we only use the postal solution. Therefore, we cannot issue or conclude an EAD.
Ukraine: the default setting is negotiated by the postal regime. If you wish to send parcels with your own EAD or with a customs document from Zásilkovna, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
USA: Only a postal solution is possible, but with the option of providing an export receipt.
Russia: For parcels sent to Russia, the EAD must also be attached directly to the parcel.
2. Customs Code
The customs code is an 8-digit marking of traded goods or the so-called combined nomenclature based on the HS code and supplemented by a two-digit marking.
3. Name of Goods
The name of goods is a detailed description of the goods being sent, which includes the following information:
what type of goods
what are the goods used for
what material are they made of
The description is mandatory in English and optional in Czech. We then use Czech language in the customs declaration.
Example of description: Glass demijohn for wine with a volume of 2 l / Skleněný demižon na víno o objemu 2 l
