Export documentation

We work with both HMRC and the Department of International Trade (DIT) through our partnership with British Chambers of Commerce (BCC). Let us help you ensure a smooth transfer to the UK-EUR1 and the UK Certificate of Origin.

We provide a range of commercial documentation services and can advise, organise and train your team, drawing on more than 30 years’ experience processing export documentation. As part of the BCC network, we’re aware of the latest changes to trade requirements, providing your business with up-to-date information, advice and signposting. Let us take the stress out of international trade, or develop skills with your in-house team.

Chamber members receive a discount of up to 50% on most export documentation.

Should I use an ATA Carnet for goods being temporarily exported to the EU?

This depends on how the goods are being transported. If they are being hand carried then it is not a requirement, but if traveling by freight then you should use one.
