fully comprehensive Customs Brokerage and Documentation
A highly experienced team to complete customs formalities and source all the documentation required for import and export.
We have the specialist knowledge and skills to support the import and export of goods, whilst taking into account the many different rules, regulations and customs regimes of individual countries. Using HMRC recognised entry software and direct connections to all the major points of import, we are able to comply with your customs formalities so they can be processed accurately to ensure delays are minimised. Our team of experienced customs clerks are able to assist with the complex process of assigning a commodity code for your goods.
We can advise on duty rates, Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) taxes, Anti-Dumping Duties (ADD), licence requirements and other import and export restrictions to ensure everything is in place before goods are shipped. We can also advise on international preferential trade and free trade agreements and how to reduce duty rates using the correct documentation (EUR1, EUR-MED, GSP, GSP+, and REX). With our electronic connection to our Chamber of Commerce we can arrange quickly required export paperwork.
In 2018, it was announced that the existing Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight system (CHIEF) was to be replaced with the introduction of the new Customs Declaration Service (CDS).
Companies importing and exporting goods may be able to take advantage of one or more HMRC schemes, such as Temporary Admission (TA), Inward Processing Relief (IPR), Outward Processing Relief (OPR), and Customs Warehousing (CW).
