If you are a trader and importing goods, it is recommended you get a deferment account with HMRC so that you can defer payment of import duty and VAT until the end of the month.
If you do not have this, you can either pay the duty upfront via FASPAY, or use CustomsLink's deferment account.
Use our deferment account to avoid being stopped at port for duty payment, which will no doubt cause delays to your deliveries.

You will need to know your own commodity codes, CPC codes, and your products. Everything else is easy and user-friendly.
In order to make an import or export declaration in the EU, you need to have an entity based there. This means that if you are UK based, you can make a UK import or export declaration, but need an EU entity to represent you in the EU to make a declaration there.
Different countries have different port pass systems. Read our Port Passes for GB ⇄ EU Imports & Exports guide for more information.
