Export Documentation

Let us simplify the complexity of your export documentation.

Business South (Otago Chamber of Commerce) is a national coordinating body to the International Chamber of Commerce Certificate of Origin Accreditation Chain. This means we can provide you with Chamber certified Certificates of Origin – which provide import authorities and your buyer with trusted assurance of origin.

What are Certificates of Origin?

Certificates of Origin are an essential component of your business’s international trade. They confirm that the goods in a particular shipment have been wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. Certificate of Origins maybe requested by importing countries’ Customs Departments, importers, freight forwarders or banks.

Certificates of Origin also determine access for goods into a market and the right for importers to claim tax relief by way of reduced duties under Free Trade Agreements (if the import country has a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with New Zealand, duty charges may be waived).
