The way businesses export and import goods has changed. Since 1 January 2021, when you export or import goods to or from any country outside the UK, you have 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, but our expert team can help.

ChamberCustoms is the customs advisory and brokerage service delivered through Chambers of Commerce across the UK, and we can make complicated Customs processes smooth, quick and entirely transparent.

What are Customs Declarations and why is it important to get them right?
A customs declaration is an official document that lists and gives details of goods that are being imported or exported.

They are legally-required forms which are used to accompany goods that are entering or leaving a market. They are crucial because they enable authorities to know where goods are coming from or going to, in order to control the flow of goods, ensure the safety and security of the country and collect the correct duty.

It's important to get them right, as mistakes can cause delays and extra costs to your business.
