UK IMPORT AND EXPORT DECLARATIONS (Full frontier declarations)

The majority of goods being imported and exported from the United Kingdom will need customs declarations from the 1st January 2021.

Following Brexit, this now applies to goods being exported to and imported from the EU.

If you are unsure how this applies to your company, you can easily check if you need to do a declaration here.

Before using our services, you will need an EORI number – check how to register here.

UK-Customs provide all the following assistance to ensure the safe arrival of your goods:

  • Entry and Exit safety and security
  • Full Frontier declarations
  • Kent permits
  • GVMS entries
  • We can also provide CFSP / Deferred Entry Declarations (more detail below)

Using our expert knowledge of UK and EU Customs Compliance, we will create the relevant Import / Export Declarations for you with the information you provide us with.

We then submit them to HMRC on behalf of your Company and hand over the validated documents to you once they are processed.

CFSP DECLARATIONS

CFSP declarations allow for goods to be imported without being declared at the border at the time of import.

HMRC have not had the ability to handle the declarations processing that was required post-Brexit so they allowed businesses and brokers to become CFSP approved far easier than normal.

So companies have been allowed to declare their imports later via CFSP declarations, as long as if they are registered or have an agent that is registered – as we are.

CFSP declarations can be approved at the end of the month of arrival or any of the 6 months following the month of arrival.

Alternatively Full Frontier Declarations can be made.

CFSP declarations are essentially deferred declarations which allow for fast movement of goods. 

Only approved businesses or customs brokers can create them such as us.

t1 AND t2 transit DECLARATIONS

When drafting a transit, it’s important to have the required customs permit.

As a recognised customs broker, we provide T1 and T2 transit services for all member states of the Common Transit Convention.

Read on to learn the differences between T1 and T2 transit.

T1 Transit

This is a transit document which allows for goods which originated outside the European Union to move freely within the European Union.

The main benefit is that no customs duties or taxes are payable as the shipment moves from one country to the next within the European Union.

This is the case until the shipment arrives at its intended final destination.

t2 Transit

This document is needed when community goods (commodities of EU origin or non-community goods that have been cleared) are transported through or to certain countries mentioned above that aren’t members of the European Union.

For example, a transport to Italy through Switzerland or an export to Norway where customs clearance isn’t done at the border but at the intended destination.

gvms entries

In 2016 Great Britain began to make plans for Brexit.

GVMS entries are a new way of using technology at the border to automate the processing of customs documentation.

Technology has been central to the governments solution of moving goods between Great Britain and the EU, and between the mainland and Northern Ireland following departure from the EU.

The government has planned to bring GVMS into their technology scheme by July 2021.

GVMS will allow the UK to:

  • Link Declaration References together so that only one single reference must be presented at the border to prove that their goods have pre-lodged all the necessary declarations they require. This single document is called a Goods Movement Reference or ‘GMR’.

     

  • Link both the movement of the goods and the processing of declarations. This means necessary documentation can be processed automatically on arrival or departure of the goods. Upgrading HMRC’s customs processing capabilities, so that goods boarding on the EU side can be processed en route.
  • Automate how the Transit system works, by marking the entry of goods into the UK.

     

As we are well trained and knowledgeable on UK Customs Compliance, you can expect our services to be aligned with the latest advancements in government border technologies such as this.
