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.

If you have an account with us, you will be able to forward all relevant Customs documentation and paperwork to us at the time of each import. We will then store this information until it is time to submit the Customs Declaration (C88) on your behalf without you having to worry about it.
