    Upon receiving goods, it is important to check against the supplier's invoice for piece count and damages. This step ensures that the correct number of items has been received and that there are no damages or discrepancies.

    The statement is true because the Customs Agent/Import Export Officer is responsible for ensuring that all necessary licenses and permits are obtained for importing goods into a country.

By doing so, the officer ensures that all imports comply with the regulations and laws of the country, and helps to facilitate the smooth and legal flow of goods across borders.

    Upon receiving notification of arrival of a shipment, the next step is to initiate a request to the Finance Department for issuance of payment to cover duties and taxes. This is necessary because duties and taxes are typically required to be paid before the shipment can be released and delivered. By initiating the request for payment, the necessary funds can be allocated and the payment process can be initiated in a timely manner, ensuring that the shipment can be cleared and delivered without any delays.
