Importer of Record for Amazon FBA

Amazon’s FBA service does many things, but helping you import your goods into the destination country and acting as the Importer of Record (IOR) on the import documents is not one of them.

On their website, Amazon has stated that they will not act as an IOR for any FBA inventory imported into any country. Therefore, anyone wanting to send goods to a foreign Amazon fulfillment center needs to appoint an Importer of Record.

We act as your Importer of Record & manage all customs clearance, import compliance, and logistics obstacles, giving you the time to focus on expanding your Amazon business worldwide.

How TecEx Services the Amazon FBA Sector

Importer of Record for Amazon FBA

Being an Importer of Record (IOR) does not mean having a foreign tax or VAT registration in the destination country. It involves taking on multiple responsibilities that must be satisfied with absolute certainty for every shipment. The IOR ensures that each import complies with local laws and regulations, files declarations, and makes payments for the associated fees, import duties, and taxes.

International Shipping and Logistics

We understand that our clients need to minimize costs and guarantee on-time delivery to maintain stock levels in the fulfillment centers. TecEx facilitates thousands of shipments worldwide using our strong relationships with international carriers (e.g., DHL and FedEx) to offer our clients the most affordable freight and courier rates, as well as lightning-fast delivery times.

We help clear your Stuck Shipments

Every seller’s worst fear is having their shipment seized by customs. Having a knowledgeable and professional IOR, such as TecEx, is essential for a successful import. Leaving the IOR fields blank on your import documentation or failing to comply with any import compliance rules will result in a failed shipment – your goods may be seized, returned to their origin, or disposed of, all at your own cost.
