When importing or exporting, the right paperwork is crucial.
If you export goods to countries outside the EU (known as ‘third countries’), you must have the appropriate licences and make export declarations to customs.
Failure to obtain correct documents can lead to…..
- VAT zero rating being disallowed
- Penalties - inability to provide export declarations to VAT inspection officers will lead to heavy penalties and percentage unpaid VAT taxes.
- Costly delays at the port/airport/border
Before you can export goods abroad you must have EORI number. It can be obtained within 3 days. You can apply for it at HMRC website, or we can do it for you quickly and efficiently. Contact us on number above for details and help.
