When the goods arrive into our depot on a Transit do we have to log them all into the ACTS? Because it is not inventory linked and the goods will be cleared on arrival can they just be sent out and we only log the ones that haven't cleared yet?

Hi Ben Philipson,
There are 2 ways you can end transit movements at an authorised consignee temporary storage facility.
You can end the movement either:
•    when the goods have arrived, at the same time as an arrived (and accepted) import declaration that covers the goods on the Transit Accompanying Document
•    by moving the goods to the authorised consignee temporary storage facility, even if an arrived import declaration is not available when the goods arrive
If an arrived import declaration is unavailable, the Transit Accompanying Document serves as the temporary storage declaration. You must keep this in your temporary storage stock account records.
Individual consignments on the Transit Accompanying Document will need separate temporary storage declarations.
Each import declaration for the onward movement of the goods (for example, in free circulation) will need to be submitted within 6 days of the transit goods entering temporary storage. 
More information available in Transit Manual Supplement.
