Do you want us to process your Customs clearance?
Prepare to start working with UK customs broker. The process starts with contact. You can meet our custom clearance agent at the office (we are based in Felixstowe, UK), call us or write a mail. After that, we will need your authorization and several documents. The process will require a minimum of effort and is much easier with specialists.
Depending on whether the clearance is completed before entering the UK or after entry, we will prepare the following documents:
For on-hold clearance, i.e. pre-entry, for goods awaiting customs control: forms C88 and H2.
- C88 stands for Single Administrative Document (SAD). It is a universal customs document used in international trade.
- Form H2 (Customs Warehousing Declaration), needed for goods stored in bonded warehouses awaiting clearance.
For ex-hold clearance, i.e. after entering the UK: from E2.
- The E2 document is the so-called Customs Goods Manifest, providing all information about the imported goods necessary for clearance.
RoRo is an abbreviation of Roll On - Roll Off, a type of ship adapted to transport cargo on wheels. The cargo enters (rolls on) onto the ship and leaves it (rolls off) on wheels, and is not loaded using e.g. cranes or terminal equipment. In the context of customs clearance, this means that although goods enter the UK on board a ship, they are treated as road transport in RoRo ports.
From July 2022, special checks will apply to plant and animal products, and these goods will be subject to additional phytosanitary or veterinary inspections.
These requirements include various categories of goods, from live animals and seedlings to used farm machinery and firewood. For example, a phytosanitary certificate (PC) will be required for the import of seedlings, root and tuber vegetables, non-frozen fruit, cut flowers, certain types of seeds, etc. More information can be found on the government pages on importing plant and animal products.
