LCC & boomerang carnets UK—A Partnership for the United Kingdom

Boomerang carnets® UK had no idea that Brexit was coming when we hit the ground running in the U.K. in 2015. What was on our mind? Bring to the U.K. our exclusive easy-to-use online application for ATA Carnets. We have a century long history doing business in the U.K. and thought providing our easy and affordable ATA Carnet process would benefit temporary exporters here as it has in the U.S.

Prior to Brexit, the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce’s (LCC) forward thinkers partnered with boomerang carnets UK to bring expedited online access to the U.K. carnet market. The partnership delivered a fully automated ATA Carnet application that is highly efficient for the carnet applicant. ATA Carnets and their accompanying guarantees can now be applied for, signed, and stamped online by U.K. companies at a more affordable cost than before. Liverpool Chamber membership is not a requirement.

The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document for temporarily exported merchandise, goods, or equipment (boomerang freight) that allows for cross-border movement of those 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.

Business does not stop; it always finds a way forward. Post Brexit ATA Carnet usage has allowed businesses to temporarily export and expand into the EU without delay. We didn’t see Brexit coming but are glad we were here to assist companies in an historic time of uncertainty.
