This type of storage is ideal for companies importing high value goods with a low or medium rotation, allowing them to defer payment of import VAT and any import duties that may apply.
A bonded warehouse is also useful for trading companies that need a stock in Spain to be closer to their customers but who need to avoid or delay import VAT and duties.
Goods that arrive from a third country can be covered for transportation to a customs warehouse under a Single Administrative Document (SAD), or a T1 or transit document.
Customs warehouses are often confused with temporary storage facilities, which are used for up to a maximum of 90 days after the third-country goods have arrived until they are customs-approved.
