Find customs agent to help with import/export declarations

Source: HM Revenue & Customs | | 30/09/2021

If you are moving goods to or from the UK then you need to ensure that you have all the correct procedures in place. This is a complex area, and you may need to consider the support of a customs agent to help with your import and / or export declarations. 

Customs declarations can be difficult and time consuming to complete.

Most businesses use a specialist such as a customs agent, broker, freight forwarder or fast parcel operator to submit import and export customs declarations on their behalf. HMRC publishes a regularly updated list of customs agents and fast parcel operators who may be able to help. The list if known as the register of customs agents and fast parcel operators. It should be noted that businesses on these lists are not vetted, approved or recommended by HMRC and proper due diligence should be used in selecting an adviser from the list. 

HMRC’s guidance is clear that if your goods do not have the right paperwork or if information is incorrect or missing, your goods may be seized and you may face delays and have to pay extra charges. 

If you are moving goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the free Trader Support Service can help guide you through the necessary processes. This service can also help businesses who import goods into Northern Ireland from the rest of the world. The use of this service is optional.
