World Reach for Charities Made Easy

Charities and not-for-profit organisations are presented with numerous opportunities to expand their activities/operations across international borders.

While the necessity to grow their mission and purpose into the world is essential, it can also be an overwhelming task due, in part, to financial and logistic challenges. Whether the purpose is for child welfare, medical relief, environmental sustainability, a charitable trust, or community sports team—goods, merchandise, and equipment are often required for the trip.

The expense of import-duty and -tax needed in crossing international borders with the necessary goods, merchandise, or equipment can be prohibitively expensive. Boomerang Carnets® UK and its partner, the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, are dedicated to facilitating expansion globally with the use of an ATA Carnet.

The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document for temporarily exported merchandise, goods, or equipment 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. Charities and not-for-profit organisations can, for example, temporarily export goods, merchandise, or equipment to demonstrate their mission, perform a service, and display samples at seminars or conferences.

The World Needs Your Services

ATA Carnets are affordable and easy to apply for. Any size company or organization in any sector can benefit from its many features no matter their size. It levels the playing field so that a big museum and local art society can both extend their reach with the use of an ATA Carnet. Use an ATA Carnet to avoid payment of import-duty and -tax on goods, merchandise, or equipment temporarily crossing international borders. The savings are significant.
