New to Import / Export June 23, 2015
Becoming involved in new services or markets can be daunting for any business. This is why here at Interspan we have a dedicated team to guide you through the whole process of importing and exporting.
New to Import
Whether it is personal use or for business purposes, importing goods can be a cheaper and more exciting option of buying any goods, and one that offers endless choice.
Regardless of previous import knowledge, you need to be aware of all the options available, including eligibility to claim any relief or exemptions, and how to minimise any surprise costs, when your goods reach the UK.
Imports from overseas are treated differently depending on whether the goods come from countries within the EU or from elsewhere. Within the EU, most goods can be imported with minimal customs control and, mostly, no import duty or VAT to pay.
Within the EU most goods are in free circulation. Importing goods from the EU is sometimes not termed as ‘importing’ – this is often referred to simply as a ‘movement’ of goods, or as an ‘acquisition’. The term ‘importing’ is often used with the implied meaning that the goods have come from outside the EU.
