An Export Accompanying Document is required for shipments being exported from Germany to EFTA countries or third countries.
- Three copies of the original commercial invoice are sufficient for goods with a value of less than €1,000.
- A single-stage EAD is required for goods valued between €1,000 and €3,000.
- A dual-stage EAD is required for goods valued between €3,000 and €6,000.
- A EUR1 is required for goods with a value of more than €6,000. This is not obligatory but avoids the need for the customer to pay customs duties.
