Save Thousands on Duty and Tax

The year began with savings. In January and February businesses in fabric manufacturing, food processing, SME business consultants, marketing, rigging, and transportation logistics, vastly different businesses with at least one money-saving thing in common—the ATA Carnet. These businesses learned about using ATA Carnets as a temporary export method through the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce.

The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document for temporarily exported merchandise, goods, or equipment (boomerang freight) that allows for the cross-border movement of goods import-duty and -tax free in and out of 87+ carnet countries and territories for up to a year. Also known as the Merchandise Passport, the ATA Carnet is a unique international trade tool for accessing foreign markets easily and affordably.

Grow your business. Using an ATA Carnet to exhibit your product or services at an international exhibition, fair, conference, or convention or to demonstrate your product or services can lead to new contracts. An international tour can increase your exposure, grow ticket sales and your brand. Using an ATA Carnet to ease customs clearance of your equipment and avoid payment of import-duty and -tax saves you time and money. Growth and savings.

When our partnership with the Chamber began in 2015, they were issuing 30-40 ATA Carnets per year. With our support, they issued 4,000+ carnets in 2022. The Chamber’s partnership with Boomerang Carnets UK offers businesses access to easy, affordable ATA Carnets. Boomerang knows how important it is to assist those seeking to expand their enterprise internationally. To learn more about the benefits of ATA Carnets visit or call 0808 189 3400.
