Smuggling, Ban-Breach and Customs Evasion in Germany

German Customs Lawyers

With customs evasion, commercial smuggling and breach of customs regulations, German customs criminal law regulates three criminal offences defined as tax offences per Section 369 (1) no. 1 of the German Fiscal Code (AO), and therefore, they carry correspondingly high penalties. The evasion of import duties proves to be particularly problematic in commercial transactions in Germany: if repeated, the suspicion of commercial behaviour quickly arises. This is aggravated by the fact that there are no standardised EU regulations on criminal liability for breaches of customs law – despite the international reference. For this reason, a professional legal defence requires in-depth knowledge of the respective national criminal law, all relevant customs regulations, and current case law.

In this context, the Germ law firm Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte offers skilled and committed legal assistance.
