What do I do if I want to fill in an export declaration to export my car outside the EU?

Exporting a car outside the EU means that you must comply with both Swedish and international regulations for exports. The process may vary slightly depending on the country of destination, but here are some general steps you can follow:

  • Verify export requirements: Before exporting the car, you should check the specific requirements for exporting to the country you plan to export to. It may include technical standards, fees, and taxes.​

  • Make sure you're right documentation: This can include the registration certificate, purchase agreement, and any other documents that prove your ownership and the origin of the car.

  • Fill in one export declaration: To export goods, including vehicles, outside the EU, you must complete an export declaration. This is usually done electronically through the Customs Service's e-services. You need to create an account and follow their step-by-step guide to declare your export.

  • Used TARIC code: To fill in the export declaration correctly, you need to enter a TARIC code (the combined nomenclature) for the car. This code helps customs to identify the type of goods you are exporting.

  • Make an appointment with customs for export inspection: In some cases, you may need to book an appointment with the Customs so that they can inspect the car and the associated documents before export.

  • Pay any fees: There may be duties and taxes that must be paid to export the car. This may include export duties, VAT, and other taxes depending on the country of destination.

  • Transport and shipping: Organize the transport of the car to the destination country. It may be a good idea to contact a freight company that specializes in international vehicle transport for help with this.

  • Follow up with the destination country's import rules: Once the car has arrived in the destination country, it must meet the country's import requirements and possibly undergo additional customs processing and payment of import duties.

What happens if I do not carry out a car export correctly?


Not carrying out a car export in the right way can lead to a series of complications that are not only time-consuming but can also mean financial losses. If the customs declaration is not completed correctly or if the necessary fees and duties are not paid, it may result in the export process being delayed. This means that the vehicle can be held in bonded warehouse, which entails storage costs and potential delays in the delivery schedule.

Furthermore, failure to comply with export procedures may result in fines and penalties from customs authorities. These fines vary depending on the seriousness of the violation and can negatively affect both the individual exporter's and the company's financial situation.

In more serious cases where violations are deemed serious, it can also lead to legal action and, in some cases, confiscation of the vehicle. This can not only lead to significant financial losses but also damage the company's reputation and its future business prospects.

Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that anyone who intends to export a vehicle outside the EU carefully follows the established ones customs and export procedures. It is recommended to seek guidance from customs authorities or professional customs brokers to ensure that all necessary steps and documentation requirements are completed correctly, contributing to a smooth and consistent export process.
