UK-EU customs arrangements

Everyone working at Portico customs agency is an experienced agent, with years of international trade knowledge and HMRC requirements. This means they are well placed to handle new UK-EU customs arrangements that have now come into force, following the end of the Brexit transition period.

Will new UK-EU customs arrangements affect your business?

With changes to the imports and exports to and from the EU, this means many businesses might be facing having to deal with custom declarations for the first time.

Fortunately we regularly handle thousands of customs declarations at all UK ports. We have the right systems to talk to HMRC to make sure goods reach their destination without delay.

We can also make duty payments up front on your behalf, with deferment powers increased to £1m.

Experienced, accredited and ready to help

We’re fully accredited and authorised by the government. When commissioning an agent you should always look for AEO accreditation. This means we can process paperwork faster, benefit from priority clearance, and means a lower risk score. This may reduce the number of checks customs carry out on your documents and goods.

So if you’re looking for an experienced specialist to help you navigate the new UK – EU customs arrangements, get in touch. Before you start, we’ll ask if you have an EORI (Economic Operators Registration and Identification) number. You now need one to move goods between the UK and the EU.

It’s really simple to apply, just visit the government’s website to register and then contact us.
