New export system (NES)
NES is an electronic export processing system, which has been developed by Customs in consultation with the export trade. Under NES, customs are moving to a standard system based on positive clearance. This means that NES declarations will have to be put into the CHIEF system (Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight) and validated before clearance is given and the cargo can be shipped.
NES declarations will be submitted to Customs electronically. As we have an electronic link to the CHIEF system, we can complete NES entries on your behalf.
EUR1 has been set up between the EU and various non-EU countries to attract trade between them by offering a reduction of duty for goods originating in the participating countries.
The EUR1 certificate is a proof of origin that allows the duty reduction. It must be stamped by the relevant customs office and must be accompanied with original signed commercial invoices.
Because our service is so thorough, we can arrange for these documents to be signed and stamped at HM customs on your behalf.
For help completing the form please contact us.
Certificate of origin
A certificate of origin helps to establish:
- Whether the product is entitled to preferential duties in the importing country
- That goods do not come from a country against which the importing country has trade restrictions
The certificate of origin must be certified and/or legalised by the relevant countries' Embassy and Chamber of Commerce. As a member of these institutes, we can complete the document and have it stamped on your behalf.
