    Payment of Duty and VAT to UK Customs

    UK Customs receive thousands of payments everyday, in an attempt to clear thousands of individual shipments. If you find yourself in the situation where you have to pay import Duty and / or VAT to Customs, then we can take away the hassle of making sure that Customs not only receive your payment, but to ensure that they match the money with your shipment.

    Any delays in paying duty and/or VAT could result in additional costs being accrued through rent/storage where your goods are located. ukimports

    Post Clearance Entry Amendments / Reclaims

    There are occassions when there is a need to advise UK Customs that the circumstances surrounding the importation of goods, has changed. Or perhaps, too much duty and/or VAT was originally paid, for whatever the reason. When this happens, we are here to help. We can provide the following services:

    - Post-Clearance submission of Customs Forms to relevant department
    (e.g. to issue a C386 for motor vehicle registration with the DVLA)

    - Post-Clearance amendments and Reclaim of any over paid duty and/or VAT.


    UK Delivery

    We can arrange for your goods to be delivered to your door. Just let our Imports team know where and when you want your goods delivered, and we will give our best price. ukimports

    Don't leave it to chance!

    You have probably read enough information by now, hopefully on our site, and perhaps other sites on the net, to know that the completion of the Customs Form C88 MUST be done in accordance with strict rules and Regulations laid out by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, and all the other UK Governing bodies. And it is for this reason alone, that you shouldn't leave you goods to be cleared by just any Customs Clearance Broker or Agent that you find, or perhaps even use one just because they shipped your goods to the UK.

    We at UK Import Services Limited pride ourselves on not just fulfilling the necessary criteria to get your goods cleared, but we have set our own even higher standards to ensure that you receive a professional and personal service, every time. ukimports
