Duty Suspended Customs Warehousing

Wincanton’s experts can ensure that your operation complies fully with duty requirements by managing and facilitating the following processes:

  • Payment of the correct customs duty at the appropriate time, providing certainty and conformity with regards to product tariff classification;
  • Movement and export of duty-suspended goods - customs warehousing removes the requirement to pay duty at port, enabling you to re-export goods without paying twice;
  • Securing permission for the destruction of duty-suspended goods, and arranging the destruction itself;
  • Inspections and audits by HMRC, allowing safe access to approve areas and duty-suspended stock.

False

  • Securing permission for the destruction of duty-suspended goods, and arranging the destruction;
