Good morning. I work as a customs clearance independent agent and was wondering if any of you know the correct procedure for the above problem. The situation is: company A is a seller from UK, company B is a buyer from EU country, company C is me - declarant. Company A refuses to sign the direct representative agreement as they claim they sell ex works therefore they are not the exporter of the goods. My question here is - who should be put in the "CONSIGNOR" BOX on the export declaration?

I would agree with company A . If they have sold exworks they have no obligation for the export declaration. They would not have any obligation to you as I assume company A isn’t your customer either. The legislation does not permit a non UK established business to act as exporter in their own name. Therefore if Company B is not established in the UK they must appoint an indirect representative to act as exporter .
