U.K. Professional Services Expand into New Markets with ATA Carnet Use

Last year, U.K. services exports reached record highs that, according to Trade Secretary Kemi Badenoch, “cement the U.K.’s position as a global services superpower”.

The high demand globally for U.K. professional services are the lifeblood of the economy employing over 8 in 10 in the workforce. Professional services seeking international growth can be launched with the benefits of the ATA Carnet. Boomerang carnets® UK and its partner, the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, is dedicated to facilitating the expansion of your service business on a global scale.

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 89 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.

Use ATA Carnets to avoid payment of the import-duty and -tax on goods temporarily crossing international borders. The goods may be temporarily exported to assist with explaining your service at a meeting, conference, symposium or trade fair, and the savings can be significant.
