CBAM: We take care of the reporting for you
When you purchase aluminium and stainless steel through Alumeco, you do not need to report data on CBAM (Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism) to the local authorities.
Alumeco is the importer of the material and therefore we handle the reporting until the end of 2025.
First reporting deadline 31 January 2024
Until the end of 2025, we are in a transition phase. During this period, aluminium and stainless steel imported into the EU must be reported.
The transition phase began on 1 October 2023 and the first reporting deadline is 31 January 2024 when the importer must report for the period from 1 October 2023 to 31 December 2023.
Until 2026, quarterly reporting is required and the last reporting deadline in the transition phase is 31 January 2026. After this date, the CBAM tax will enter into force.
Tax from 2026
During the transition phase, you will not be paying a tax on the imported material.
When the tax comes into force in 2026, you will need to purchase CBAM certificates corresponding to the carbon emissions of CBAM-liable goods. The tax does not apply to goods imported during the transition phase.
What do you need to do?
If you purchase your materials through Alumeco, you do not need to do anything.
If you import goods yourself, you need to register as a CBAM declarant and report to the EU through the CBAM system. Which authority you report to depends on which EU country you import goods into.
The reporting contains:
- The total quantity of each product type covered by CBAM.
- The supplier's information with address, contact and phone number
- The installation address, contact and phone number
- HS codes and country of origin of the goods.
- The total direct and indirect emissions from the production of the goods (the EU provides default values if the exact emissions are not known).
- Information on any carbon taxes paid in the country of origin.
