Customs is a generic term used throughout the world. It stands for the recognised government body responsible for border control, import and export of goods (commodities) and the policing of all traffic coming in and out of a country. In the UK, Customs is HMRC “Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs”. HMRC looks after the collection of all taxes, duty, VAT and excise as well as control of illegal substances, contraband, counterfeit, drugs, etc.
I provide customs clearance services through my business, Customs Clearance Ltd. Customs clearance as a service is all about ensuring that the correct paperwork is received and presented to HMRC and that an entry declaration meets the requirements and follows the complex rules, regulations and guidelines imposed by HMRC. We’re hand to assist HMRC with any consignment that needs a documentation examination or a physical inspection, and mediate on a client’s behalf, if needed.
Whatever the country of origin, whatever the destination, customs clearance is a complex business. Without a detailed knowledge of the rules and regulations, imports and exports can take much longer to process, and may make unanticipated demands on your budget and other resources.
That’s why I do what I do.
