The import process in North Macedonia can be quite intricate and time-consuming, involving multiple steps and complex paperwork. To navigate this efficiently, having an Importer of Record (IOR) is a valuable asset.
For tech gear, North Macedonia imposes a relatively high import tax rate, significantly impacting overall costs.

Despite the growing use of English in North Macedonia’s business circles, not all customs officials or logistics providers may be fluent in English. This language difference can lead to communication challenges and potential misunderstandings during the import process.
Situated strategically between Europe and Asia, North Macedonia is an appealing location for IT companies looking to expand into new markets. However, having a locally registered entity act as the IOR is still necessary to smoothly clear your goods through customs.
