Commercial invoice

A commercial invoice is a document used in international trade that serves as an invoice for goods being exported. The commercial invoice is an important document for customs purposes, as it provides a detailed description of the goods being shipped, their value, and the terms of sale. The commercial invoice is typically used by customs officials to determine the duties and taxes that should be applied to the shipment, and it is often used as the basis for calculating the value of the shipment for insurance purposes.
