What is a commercial invoice (CI)?

A Commercial invoice is the official transaction record between a shipper and a recipient. It is the most common source of information used by Customs officials to clear FedEx Express shipments across international borders.

Important:  

  • The values on the invoice must match the values on Air Waybill
  • The Customs value must represent the true market value of the goods
  • It can be hand written or typed
  • It is mandatory for all non-document shipments being sent outside of the EU
  • Importer / Exporter EORI/Tax ID numbers are required

Our online service guide shows how to complete a commercial invoice - it is on page 12.
