In this Lunch and Learn, international trade expert Mike Wilson from Go Exporting Ltd explains what small business owners need to know about submitting customs declarations on time.
Since 1 January 2022, you've needed to complete customs declarations when importing goods from the EU to Great Britain (GB), at the time you or your third-party customs broker or agent bring the goods into the country.
You can no longer delay making full customs declarations. Failing to comply with this new rule may mean your goods are held up and you incur additional charges.
Key takeaways from this session:
The new customs declarations rules when importing goods from the EU to Great Britain or exporting goods from Great Britain to the EU
The differences between full and simplified customs declarations
The evidence you need to supply
