Importing goods into the UK and Europe
We help companies deal with customs duties
We advise South African and other companies based outside of the UK on how to import goods into the UK and Europe and how much customs and VAT duties need to be paid.
We ensure that our clients minimise their customs duties and related taxes and assist with communicating with HMRC and other governmental bodies. The issues that we deal with include:
- Classification and valuation of goods for customs purposes
- The rules regarding trade agreements
- Claiming duty relief on HMRC and other schemes such as Inward Processing Relief, Outward Processing Relief, Processing Under Customs Control, End-Use Relief etc
- Avoiding duty on materials and components under the EU’s duty suspension scheme
We also provide process control reviews and organise training for clients’ staff.
