Chamber Customs

ChamberCustoms delivers a customs declaration service for UK importers and exporters, of all sizes, in every region of the United Kingdom.

With our extensive knowledge, reputation and first-class service in facilitating international trade, we can take the hassle out of your hands when it comes to exporting and importing goods.

The service is offered direct to businesses and through UK freight forwarders, ensuring that customs clearance is accurate, timely and avoids additional costs through delays and errors.

With direct links to the HMRC Customs handling system and all inventory linked ports, we can ensure that your goods, no matter where they enter or leave the UK, will be cleared for onward transportation smoothly. We can help you keep your time sensitive supply chains, moving efficiently and economically.

 

NEW SERVICE - T1 transit documents

If you are moving goods from the UK to the EU, ChamberCustoms can help.

A T1 transit document allows goods to travel from the UK to an EU destination country without the need to make an import declaration at the first port of entry into the EU.

We create Transit Declarations on your behalf using SGS TransitNet. TransitNet is a global transit service offered to approved clients. SGS as holder of the Common Transit Convention (CTC) procedure acts as 'principal' with Customs Authorities in all CTC countries and ChamberCustoms will be your agent.

ChamberCustoms will submit and monitor Transit declarations on your behalf. We will arrange comprehensive bank guarantees through SGS to cover your goods in transit. TransitNet operates under EU CT regulations and principles.

For example, for goods travelling to Germany by road, you can enter the EU through any coastal port without the need to declare customs. The import declaration can therefore be made in Germany once the transit movement has been completed.

The main benefit is that no customs duties or taxes are payable as the shipment moves from one country to the next within the EU.

With direct links to the HMRC Customs handling system and all inventory linked ports, we can ensure that your goods, no matter where they leave the UK, will be cleared for onward transportation smoothly. We can help you keep your time sensitive supply chains moving efficiently and economically ensuring custom clearance is accurate, timely and avoids additional costs through delays or errors.

We offer:

  • A high level of compliance and assurance for customers
  • Confidence on tariff and data entry to remove fiscal risk; backed by the technical expertise of the market leader in this sector
  • A wealth of international trade experience and expertise from across the trusted Chamber of Commerce network UK.
