Dubai customs offers the facility of accounts to its clients for paying various charges, duties and deposits.The two types of account facility currently available are:
CDR account facility
This allows the client to pay various charges and duties through this account.This is granted against a collateral of a bank guarantee or a cash deposit sufficient enough to cover the potential liabilities that the client might incur during a month.The liabilities during a month will be posted to the client's ledger and customs will send a demand notice at the end of each month which the client should settle within 20 days from the date of the demand notice.
Standing Guarantee Account facility
This facility is granted against a collateral of a bank guarantee or a cash deposit sufficient enough to cover the potential liabilities that the client might incur during a month. This allows the client to clear customs bills where deposits are payable without actually paying them.Such liabilities against deposits will be notionally posted to this account and the actual payment will be claimed only if the client fails to export or re-export the goods he cleared under this account or fails to submit the proof of export or the required documents within the stipulated time along with applicable fines as laid down in customs Notice No.10/99 dated 13-12-1999.Such payments will be demanded at the end of the expiry of the stipulated validity of the deposit and should be settled within 7 days from the date of the demand.
