e-dec online declaration of commercial import

The last few years I have normally used custom agents to process my paperwork for the import of commercial goods into Switzerland. Of course they charge me each time about EUR 150 for this service.

I was wondering, if there is anyone here who could advise me how to do the import procedure by myself, using the Swiss customs e-dec portal. I transport the goods myself into CH.

I understand I would need to open an account with the Swiss Federal Customs Administration (FCA) so they can invoice me the customs duties and VAT.

Then I would need to check tares.ch for the correct Tariff number.

From here I am somewhat lost. Would I then need to enter all relevant details in the e-dec portal and, I can then simply pass customs with my purchase invoice and e-dec print-out?

Thank you for any feedback!

Did you ever get the answer or figure out the process? We are in the same situation.
