This text "CDS" indicates new or modified data elements that are now required in the CDS following the implementation of the UCC rules. Rest assured, these elements are already available in CUSTOMS via conex™.

By opting to apply to HMRC for a customs warehousing authorisation, traders can benefit from storing goods with duty or import VAT payments suspended.  Duty is only paid once the goods leave the warehouse, unless they’re re-exported or move to another customs procedure. Two types of warehouses exist: public and private.


Goods can be customs warehoused when they are:

→ Imported from a third country, customs duties or import VAT liable - including goods imported under CFSP.

→ Moved from another EU customs warehouse in duty suspension.

→ Common Agricultural Policy goods that qualify for an export refund.

→ EU goods that qualify for common storage arrangements.

 

Customs warehousing can further be used if:

→ The final destination of the goods is not determined upon arrival.

→ Import licences and/or paperwork are delayed.

→ You intend to use another customs procedure, such as IP for example.

 

Customs warehouse-authorised traders benefit by:

→ Only paying duty and VAT once goods leave the warehouse, providing flexibility and cashflow advantages.

→ Co-storing goods subject to another customs procedure (such as Free Circulation, IP).

→ Postponing the decision on the final destination of your goods when they arrive in the UK.

→ Allowing traders to use another customs procedure (for example, Inward Processing for non-excise goods).

→ Allowing traders to discharge from another procedure (such as IP) without physically exporting the goods.

Discharge procedures:
