Export customs clearance process
When exporting goods from UK, your goods must always be declared to the UK customs authorities. You may not send goods out of UK before the customs authorities has given its permission. As an exporter you are required to notify via a export customs declaration and the customs authorities will control and approve or disapprove the documentation. When approved, the goods may be shipped out of the country.
There are two types of export shipments;
regular export from UK to any country
temporary export, - for example goods that are exported for repair and will be re-imported to UK at a later stage
For the temporary export there are special requirements for the documentation and process, and we can assist as your customs broker.
