  • Recovering Duties

    Is it possible to recover paid duties? We import goods from a third country then sell it to customers in the EU. These goods have a non-zero tariff rate when imported to the EU. We are still selling stock that was imported to the UK before we left the EU. Since they are not of preferential origin the importer will have to pay this tariff again when we sell it (before it was in free circulation so no tariff was paid). Can we recover some of the duties we have already paid for goods that are re-exported?
  • EIDR (Standard goods)

    For goods that are being imported from the EU (and were in free circulation), that are not controlled and will not be going into any temporary storage, can you confirm: - At the time of entry, only entry in declarants records are required. At this point no other form should be filled out and no notification given to customs. - If we are planning to use an agent to make the supplementary declaration at a later date do these agents have to EIDR to their own records when the goods are arriving, or can they use EIDR that we have made into our own records? i.e. Can we EIDR into our own records, then later procure the services of an agent?
