60 Days Credit

May 2017

Increase your Credit Rating - CASH IS KING!

We’ve had good uptake in our 60 days Credit Facility.  Our UK Commercial Director, Mark Hall commented “At first people think it is too good to be true, others see it as a loan, with both perceptions being wrong. We are not lending money, we are simply giving extended credit terms.  Any business taking advantage of this effectively increases their Credit Rating and their cashflow of course”.

Change in Indian Service Tax

May 2017

In February, we informed you about the Indian Service Tax. In the past months, this tax of 4,5% was invoiced to the shipper.
The Indian Ministry of Finance has recently changed these regulations. With immediate effect, the Indian Service Tax will be payable on Collect basis: by the importer.
Depending on the carrier, this tax either has to be paid to the Indian government directly, or will be collected by the carrier.
