Customs Declarations

From January 2021, when you export goods to any country, you will need to submit a Customs Declaration. For businesses that have previously only traded with the EU, this will be a new factor to get used to. Completing a Customs Declaration can be complicated and you may need to obtain certain software, so it is a good idea to look into this beforehand and take the time to familiarise yourself with the process.

Business West can help you with your Customs Declarations in two ways:

  • Customs Declaration Training - our Customs Declarations training will help you to identify what you need to know to accurately complete a simple Customs Declaration.
  • ChamberCustoms - we can take the hassle out of your hands when it comes to exporting and importing goods through our Customs Declaration service for UK importers and exporters of all sizes, in every region of the United Kingdom.

Advice & Guidance

We continue to provide expert guidance and resources, addressing the big issues and questions affecting all businesses.
