Customs Document Verification - 2021 by Fidex001(m): 8:04am On Jun 08, 2021

Have you ever wondered how you can identify fake custom papers?

All you need to check is what we call “CUSTOMS REFERENCE NUMBER“/C-Number or A-Number on your SGD form "Single Goods Declaration Form".

How To Verify And Rectify Your Custom Duty Papers
As we all know, Nigeria Customs recently set a deadline for offenders to pay outstanding import duties on their cars.

Have you ever wondered how you can identify fake Customs' papers?

All you need to check is what we call “CUSTOMS REFERENCE NUMBER“  or C-Number on your SGD Form - "Single Goods Declaration Form".

This particular number is actually used to input details of your vehicle and payment of duty into the customs’ database. It shows information like the Consignee info (agency handling your job), the means of entry (road for vehicles through land borders and ports for sea), office of entry (Idiroko Customs Command or TIN-CAN PORT), location of vehicle and place of discharge (Idiroko Border, Seme Border, Tin-Can), name and address of person/persons responsible for financial settlement (the owner of the vehicle) etc.

What fraudulent dealers do is called MO or Machined Outside - This is a process where a forger forges the bank receipts and all customs documentation. The documents look genuine but are not in the customs data base. It is a giant syndicate at the ports and borders because the vehicles are ultimately smuggled out of the Ports or Borders with the connivance of fraudulent Customs Officials.

At the top right hand corner of your document is a very bold set of numbers. This is the “C”-Number. You can not miss it because it is bold and prominent. Underneath it is a date. That date is to reflect the date duty was paid at the bank and stored in the customs ASSYCUDA data base. ASSYCUDA means “automated system customs data”. And the date under the C number means that that C-Number was computed into the data system on that date plus all the charges paid. If the payment reflects on the data base it means your documents are genuine. On the other hand if it does not reflect it means your car documents are duds/fake and your vehicle is liable to seizure and confiscation if you are stopped at any check point or if you are on a long distance journey.

My advise to any one buying a car from anybody is to request for the relevant documents in particular the SGD form which means “Single Goods Declaration Form” and has the C-Number boldly written at the top right hand corner. Under the C-Number is the date that document was posted into the data system.

No two vehicles can have the same C-Number and date. So armed with this you can visit any customs station to know if your documents are genuine.

With some cotonou smuggled cars showing up on our streets with forged documents as Lagos cleared cars and vehicles been machined out of the ports, this is a stress-free method of verifying your papers.

I am making this post for verification of Customs Papers (Duty Payment/ C-Numbers) from the following points of entry :–

1. Lagos Port (Tincan, PTML, Apapa)
2. Onne Port
3. Idiroko

All you need to do is supply your name, address, VIN and the C-number of the vehicle and we run checks on it.
