Making it easy ?
Customs Simplifications are simple to apply for but difficult to achieve. Your business needs to be well documented.
We help you document your processes and demonstrate that you qualify for the simplification.
What are they ?
Suspend import duty and VAT while goods are stored in the UK.
Pay duty and VAT on only the cost of changes + transport when goods are re-imported
Returned Goods Relief
Avoid duty and VAT when the same goods are re-imported into the UK.
Reduce the amount that you need to provide as a customs guarantee. Reduce the checks made on your goods at the border.
Guarantee to HMRC that you can pay duty + VAT if the rules of the simplication are broken
