Hi All, I have already declared goods out of the UK to US and 1 week later we are returning these in merchandise in baggage, do I need to do another declaration or is the one out sufficient?

Yes a customs declaration is required either to import or export goods to or from any country. How that declaration is made depends on several factors including the method of transport or value. Have a look at this guide As you have previously exported the items from the UK you will need proof of that export so you don’t incur any customs duty. The reason is that once goods have left the UK they lose their duty paid UK status.

You cannot make a simple online declaration if your goods are being put into or taken out of a customs special procedure, or if you intend to claim a relief for these goods.
