Customs Duty

Following the 1 May 2016 implementation of the Union Customs Code (UCC) and with the shadow of Brexit hanging over UK businesses, access to Customs advice and services has never been more important. The Customs area can be complex with a diverse range of customs reliefs and regimes such as End Use, IPR, OPR, AEO and Customs Warehousing available to businesses.

Unlike VAT, Customs duty is not recoverable and therefore becomes an absolute cost which either has to be built into your pricing or which directly impacts on your businesses profitability. We offer advice and assistance in all areas of international trade and provide guidance on which duty reliefs and/or regimes may be appropriate to you.

Our Customs duty services includes:

  • Assistance with implementation of customs reliefs/regimes; and
  • Business process and controls reviews – A customs health check that provides you with comfort that your supply chain processes are operating efficiently and that potential saving opportunities are not being missed.

Whether it is supplementing your in-house resource on a specific project, or ensuring that you understand your obligations and costs as you move into new markets; our Team has the skills needed to help guide through your UCC obligations.
