IS YOUR PAPERWORK/CERTIFICATION IN ORDER?

The importance of understanding and correctly completing export documentation is crucial for any business trading internationally. The delay of getting the goods to your customer seriously effects your reputation and the increased costs have an influence on your profit margins. The country or customer requirements need to be recognised before an order is accepted, as some form of documentation will be required even if you sell on an ex works basis. HM Revenue and Customs will require evidence of removal and the mandatory obligations are not to be ignored even if the procedure is outsourced.
 
Don’t let the errors in the detail be a costly mistake. We can help you access the following support:
 
  • Legal & Accounting Services - gain access to Specialist Advisers
     
  • Export Trade Documents - access specialist advisers to ensure your export documentation is certified to comply with in-country customs requirements
