Online check how to import or export goods


04/04/2024

HMRC has a useful online tool to help UK business owners check how to import or export goods. This online tool can be used by businesses, the self-employed and agents acting on behalf of a business.

Using the online tool you can obtain information on:

  • the commodity codes (reference numbers) you need to classify goods for import and export declarations;
  • paying the right VAT and duties for your goods;
  • which licences and certificates you will need for your goods; and
  • how to move goods into a specific country.

There are many special procedures to be aware of when importing or exporting goods to / from the UK. Following the end of the Brexit transition period, the process for importing / exporting goods to / from the EU effectively mirrors the process for all other international destinations. There are different rules if you are moving goods in or out of Northern Ireland under what is known as the Windsor framework.

The online check can be a useful tool for smaller businesses and the self-employed to familiarise themselves with the necessary requirements and work accordingly. Businesses can make customs declarations themselves or hire a third party such as a courier, freight forwarder or customs agent to do the paperwork.
