Once you have submitted your export declaration, your entry will be validated by both CustomsLink and then HMRC.
If your submission is accepted and cleared by customs, you will receive an email from us confirming clearance which will also contain your Movement Reference Number (MRN).
This is your customs clearance declaration for your delivery. This does NOT mean you are customs cleared to leave the UK or the EU.
You MUST present yourself to HMRC at the port of exit from which you are leaving the U.K. You must have copies of both your customs documentation and commercial paperwork and any other documentation, including a packing list, export licence and permits, for each consignment loaded onto your vehicle.
Please note that if you are leaving the EU via another country, you will also need a copy of the Export Accompanying Document (EAD). This MUST be presented to the Customs Office of exit of the European Union
You can ONLY leave the UK when you have received a Permission to Progress (PTP) notified by CustomsLink by email. You MUST wait at the Customs office of Exit from the UK until this has been received.
You can ONLY leave a port of the EU, excluding the UK, when you have received specific authorisation from the Customs Officer in the Customs Office of exit of the European Union
