Please note that the Consignor (Exporter) and the Consignee (Importer) will need to research and be fully aware of their responsibilities regarding licensing, certificates and regulations for the goods being Exported and Imported. Full information needs to be provided to us by the Consignor, the Consignee, and the Transport Company and failure to do so will result in delayed shipments. We can only give limited advice on these matters as per the rules set out by HM Revenue & Customs.

The UK Government are allowing UK Importers 6 months from the date of entry into the UK*, up to 31 December 2021, to submit a full customs clearance declaration for standard goods*, however you will still need to record the import and have all the information prior to entry into the UK. This is called EIDR – Entry into the declarants record.
* Controlled goods, for example alcohol, chemicals, need to have Full Customs Declarations at the time of entry into the UK.
* Food, plant and animal products will need to have Full Customs Declarations from 01 October 2021.
