Requests and Landed Cost - Odoo Enterprise
The request is the fiscal declaration, where the SAT is informed of the destination that will be given to the merchandise that is introduced or extracted from the country and verifies compliance with customs obligations. This electronic document has information on the goods, traffic and customs regime to which they are destined.

The petition serves to verify that the data set forth in the document they present are the same as those that the authority has in the customs electronic system.

Structure of the request number

    The request must include a key according to a structure that is provided by the SAT, this structure has fifteen digits, which correspond to:

    • 2 digits, of the year of validation.

    • 2 digits, of the dispatch customs office.

    • 4 digits, of the number of the patent or authorization granted by the General Administration of Customs to the agent, customs representative or warehouse that promotes the dispatch. When this number is less than four digits, the necessary zeros must be added to complete 4 digits.

    • 1 digit, must correspond to the last digit of the current year, except in the case of a consolidated petition initiated in the immediately preceding year or the original petition of a rectification.

    • 6 digits, which will be progressively numbered by customs in which they are authorized for clearance, assigned by each agent, customs agent or warehouse, referring to all types of request.


      Each of these groups of digits must be separated by two blank spaces, except between the digit that corresponds to the last digit of the current year and the six digits of the progressive numbering.

      In the case of requests for rectification or complementary petitions, they must be identified with a new number.

    What is the landed cost?

    The landed cost is the total price of a product once it is delivered to the final customer. It takes into account the cost of a product from its manufacture, shipment in a container, to the buyer.

    The calculation of the landed cost includes all the specific expenses associated with the shipment of each item, such as:

    • original price of the product

    • Shipping or transportation costs

    • Sea freight

    • Taxes

    • Duty

    • customs clearance

    • packing fees

    • Management and payments

    • Currency exchange (if applicable)

    Calculate the landed cost with the sum of all these elements.

    Note: The inventory valuation of the products to be affected must be FIFO.

    Why is Landed Cost important for your company?

    Calculating the landed cost will be an added value for your company for several reasons:

    • It will allow you to correctly calculate the profit of each product you ship, thus giving you a clear view of the performance of your business.

    • You will make sure to establish the most profitable price for each product. Once you know the real cost of each item, you will be closer to setting the sale price and the maximum discount you can offer.

    • You will obtain a clear analysis of your supply chain and all the associated costs, which will allow you to identify savings opportunities.

    • It is essential when making accurate financial reports. You will be able to see the value of the assets accurately and correctly visualize the monthly profit of your company.
