BREXIT – Customs Clearance Declaration

From January 1st 2021, the UK will no longer be part of the Customs Union with the EU.

Links to documentation from UK government website:


Accordingly, all exports and imports between the UK and EU will require Customs Declarations to be made in the UK (and separately in the EU – please liaise with your buyer/seller/agent in the EU).

Unless stated otherwise, ALS’s quotation excludes all export and import customs clearance formalities and assumes the client will arrange their own customs entries with appointed agent(s).

Should you require UK customs clearance formalities for your shipments, please contact ALS.

For export customs clearance declarations, the ALS team would require the following information/documentation at the time of booking:

  • Your EORI Number
  • Packing List
  • Commercial Invoice
  • Consignee
  • Final Destination (if different to Consignee)
  • HS Tariff / Commodity Code(s)
  • CPC Code
  • EU Customs Agent details
  • Any applicable Certificates, Permits, or Licences
  • Deferment Account (for imports only, if applicable)

For import customs clearance, this excludes any applicable payments of Customs VAT, Duties, and any other taxes/payments for licences, permits, etc, to be arranged by the client with HMRC directly.

Any/All costs incurred due to delays caused by late or incorrect customs information/documentation will be for the account of the client.
