What is the Declared Unit value?
The Declared Unit Value is a mandatory field that must be completed on all order’s going outside of the UK for Customs information and is used to generate the Custom’s Invoice sent with the consignment.
Where does it appear?
The Declared Unit value appears on the Order Summary page before the Unit Selling Price, see image below:
What should I put in the Declared Unit value field?
The value to be entered depends on the end customer the order is going to.
If this product has been sold by the Publisher to a Customer before it is printed and shipped, then the Declared Unit Value should be the selling price (retail price) between the Publisher and the Publisher’s Customer. This could be an end user, a Retailer or another Wholesaler or Distributor.
If the product is being printed for stocking purposes for Publisher inventory, then the Declared Unit Value should be the cost of manufacturing (Print Cost) by Ingram.
Please note this value is mandatory as it is used for the Commercial Invoice.
For orders printed in the UK, if no value is entered or a value less than the Unit Selling Price is entered, the value will be updated automatically to match the Unit Selling Price.
Note: This value should never be input as anything other than a single unit’s value (retail price or print cost) as this figure is then multiplied by the number of units being purchased. If this value is input incorrectly the Custom’s Invoice will be incorrect and this may lead to additional charges and exceptions being raised by Custom’s.
