What is the customs procedure needed for moving our own plant machinery to England to use on a civil engineering project? It looks like ATA carnets can't be used and neither can temporary admission. The machines are owned by us and are not being sold or hired to the client. The machines will be returned to ROI when the project is finished.

It is not clear why you think you cannot use temporary admission . There is no requirement for a sale to take place to use TA. Ta sounds the correct procedure to use in the circumstances you describe.

Ok but you didn’t state what the intended use was in your original post . Civil engineering does not necessarily imply it is included in exclusions for professional equipment. There is also a TA for anything else not listed in the specific reasons. Prior approval is always needed . It is also possible to extend the period of time the goods are in the UK temporarily in some cases but you would need to state your requirements in the application. HMRC would then make a decision on a case by case basis.
