Through our Customs Bonded Warehouse, we have a team dedicated to the management of import and export procedures who can help relieve the administrative burden of customs requirements.
Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)
AEO status is an internationally recognised quality mark indicating that our role in the international supply chain is secure, and that our customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant. AEO gives us quicker access to certain simplified customs procedures and in some cases the right to ‘fast-track’ your shipments through certain procedures.
Designated Export Place (DEP)
Our approved DEP warehouse allows us to retain maximum control over your export customs declarations prior to delivery to the airport. As we make all necessary declarations electronically, the amount of time your export is at the airline or being handled by third party carriers is minimised, reducing the possibility of logistical delays.
Our premises are approved by HMRC, allowing us to store your object in our warehouse with any import VAT due suspended. We can also supply you with any inward and outward customs documentation required and you are able to visit to view your object while it remains with us.
Our ability to undertake import and export customs clearances directly with HMRC, rather than through a third party customs broker, gives us maximum control and confidentiality with your information, while minimising your administrative burden.
Should you have any queries related to the import and export of your art, our customs department is able to give you confidential and expert information and advice.
