Imports to the Canary Islands

Best Logistics Canarias operates its own weekly import service from various ports to Tenerife and Las Palmas, and from anywhere in the world.

The fact that the Canary Islands are an outermost region of the European Union means that its tax and fiscal system is different from the rest of the countries that make up the European Union. This system is called the Canary Islands Special Regime and therefore, the importation of products within this system involves the imposition of specific taxes.

These taxes are:

  • Goods of Community origin (including Spain).
  • A.I.E.M. (Arbitrio sobre Importaciones y Entregas de Mercancías en las islas Canarias).
  • IGIC (Canary Islands General Indirect Tax). Its operation is identical to VAT (VAT in English) and therefore it is compensated with the IGIC that must be passed on to the buyer.

Goods of non-EU origin.

  • Tariffs: In addition to the taxes and rates mentioned above (AIEM and IGIC), in the event that the merchandise was of extra-community origin, the tariffs that the European Union would mark for that merchandise in the event that it was imported by any other Community Customs would also be applied to it.

Importing to the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands, being an archipelago with a population of just over 2 million inhabitants, needs to import all kinds of goods, manufactured, equipment and consumer goods. It is estimated that between 80 and 90% of the food consumed in the archipelago comes from imports.

In the case of imports, the product will have to be collected at the port and the AIEM will have to be paid, as long as the buyer is a company located in the Canary Islands.

Although the vast majority of goods shipped to the Canary Islands are shipped by ship, there are also goods that are shipped by plane. In Best Logistics Canarias we have all the services for imports and exports in the Canary Islands.

Exports from the Canary Islands

Best Logistics Canarias operates its own weekly export service from Tenerife to anywhere in the world.

Logistics in the Canary Islands is conditioned because, for tax purposes, any entry into port of goods that do not come from islands of the archipelago, even if they belong to Spain, is considered an import. In the same way, goods leaving Santa Cruz de Tenerife or Las Palmas de Gran Canaria for the rest of Spain are also considered exports.

In the Canary Islands, the main products exported are agricultural products, especially bananas, present in almost all the islands, and tomatoes, abundant in Gran Canaria, Tenerife and Fuerteventura.

To export, it is necessary to have a customs agent who can manage the SAD (Single Administrative Document) in port to avoid problems and in Best Logistics Canarias we have our own office for this.

We connect the Canary Islands with the rest of the world. Best Logistics Canarias is a bridge from the Canary Islands to the rest of the world, in the export of goods of a wide range of products and in the application of agri-food quality standards and traceability. Thus promoting the products of the primary sector with the aim of maintaining agricultural incomes, saving costs thanks to its economic services.
