Trade Compliance

Do you purchase goods from overseas for your retail business?

I can check that you are importing under the correct procedures, are compliant with HMRC and ensure that you are paying the correct amount of import duty & VAT.

Many small businesses don’t realise that if you are importing goods from outside the EU, then you are responsible (and therefore liable) for the import declaration made upon entry into the UK – Not your broker or transport provider, I.e. global courier company etc.

It is your responsibility to ensure that goods are imported in the correct manner, classified under the correct HS Commodity Code, and pay the correct amounts of applicable duties & taxes.

I have a strong Logistics and Customs Compliance background, and I am happy to carry out Health checks, to ensure that you are fully compliant with HMRC rulings and give you peace of mind that you are paying the correct amounts of duty & VAT.

I can also assist you with:-

  • Setting up of UK VAT Registration & EORI
  • Complete commodity HS Classification
  • Assistance with Customs regimes
  • Look at streamlining or cost saving options on your transportation costs
  • Entry Auditing
