Preparing your business for completing customs declarations

by | Oct 12, 2020

Importers and exporters will need to complete customs declarations next year, regardless of whether the UK agrees a free trade deal with the EU.

To complete declarations you will need:

  • Have a GB economic Operator Registration and Identification number (EORI number)
  • Decide if you will use a customs intermediary

If you choose to complete the Customs declarations yourself you will need to:

  • Have access to the relevant IT systems to complete declarations
  • Know the customs value and commodity code for goods traded
  • Consider simplifications and facilitations such as customs freight simplified procedures (CFSPs), warehousing, inward processing, and transit
