File Your Export Documents Online!

Are you exporting aircraft parts? Don’t forget that all of your Shipper’s Export Declarations must be filed online (via the aesdirect website).  The implementation date for the new rule that requires online filing of Shipper’s Export Declarations is September 30, 2008, so time is running our if you are still using paper forms!

The final rule that requires online filing can be found online at:

There are severe penalties for failing to use the online system. In addition to the civil penalties that can run up to $10,000 per failure (in addition to any other export violation penalties that might also be discovered), a failure to file an online Shipper’s Export Declaration can also lead to a criminal penalty that includes imprisonment for up to five years per violation. In a criminal action, the government can also require the exporter to forfeit to the United States the proceeds of the export transaction, so that there is no situation in which it can be ‘profitable’ to circumvent the law.
