A Pre-payment scheme is also available for use by declarant. This scheme is particularly useful for both Customs, who have the benefit of cash in advance and a substantial reduction in the number of transactions handled by the cashier, and the trader who has the advantage of taking delivery of the goods immediately after the removal note is issued. This scheme is very helpful / useful to regular (frequent importers) traders who import goods at large. As traders do not have to come counters for payments and refunds are directly deposited to related pre-payment accounts. Traders can also pay on the basis of any period they wish since the account can be topped up at will, thus reducing the cash-flow "problems" to a minimum. The pre-payment scheme is operating to the satisfaction of both traders and Customs.
