The chemical industries are a critical part of the global economy, providing essential products and materials for a wide range of applications. However, the nature of chemical manufacturing means products are often more difficult to classify for customs purposes. This can lead to delays and disruptions in the supply chain, as well as increased costs.

Customs Support Services for the Chemical Industry

Customs Landscape for Chemical Industries

As the world becomes increasingly globalised, businesses in the chemical industry must be able to adapt to new customs landscapes. Barbourne Brook can help businesses in the chemical industry navigate these changes and ensure compliance with customs regulations.

Visibility of customs is typically poor within the chemical industry. Taking a step back and looking at this holistically can often lead to substantial bottom-line savings. In addition, the risk of non-compliance is usually higher in the chemical industries sector as businesses typically don’t have in-house teams and therefore, the responsibility of customs often bleeds into several departments.

Inward Processing Relief for Chemical Industries

Inward Processing Relief (IPR) is a customs procedure that allows businesses to import goods into the European Union (EU) for processing and then export the processed goods back to non-EU countries without paying duties or taxes. This can be a valuable tool for businesses in the chemical industry, as it can help them save on production costs.

A lesser-known branch of IPR is ‘Tariff Inversion’ which is where goods can be imported under IPR at a higher rate of duty and be processed into goods with a lower duty. You then pay the lower duty payment of the transaction. This is pertinent for chemical industries.

Barbourne Brook is a leading provider of IPR services. We have a team of experts who can help you navigate the complexities of the IPR process and ensure that you are compliant with all EU regulations. We can also help you take advantage of IPR opportunities, such as duty-free imports of raw materials and components.
