Abstract:

This book, based on the practical experience of the IMF's Fiscal Affairs Department, sets out a strategy for successfully modernizing customs administration. The essence is to establish transparent and simple rules and procedures, and to foster voluntary compliance by building a system of self-assessment supported by well designed audit policies. Having set out this strategy--and its benefits--the book discusses in depth what is required in terms of trade policy, valuation procedures, dealing with duty reliefs and exemptions, controlling transit movements, organizational reform, use of new technologies, private sector involvement, and designing incentive systems into an effective customs administration.--Publisher's description.
