Do I need a deferment account? | CustomsLink®

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.
