Customs Compliance

Businesses are solely liable for the accuracy of their customs declarations, duties and import VAT. Barbourne Brook’s Customs Compliance team work with clients to implement and maintain best practices in process mapping, gap analysis and implementing the necessary procedures to avoid unnecessary profit losses as a result of penalties and additional collections.

Inward Processing

Some businesses can reduce customs duty charges when importing and exporting goods before putting them to a qualifying use with inward processing. By doing this, your business might be required to take on additional compliance obligations in order to adhere to HMRC regulations. Barbourne can help in determining your inward processing requirements.
