The harmonized system code or HS code list is essential for anyone dealing with international trade. It is because, by using these codes, a detailed invoice preparation is not required by the importers and exporters in trading. The customs department’s work is made simple as they can check the goods or commodity details by just checking the six to ten-digit codes present on the shipment invoice.
