Supply chain analysis

We can review your supply chain and identify the areas where a hold up could occur. Working with our international networks, we can make sure that your supply chain is as efficient as possible with the minimum loss of VAT and duty.

Preparing for 2021

VAT & duties review – Are you paying the correct VAT and duties and can you provide evidence if challenged by HMRC? If you are using a freight forwarder for your customs declarations, you may not have the necessary evidence. We can help review your arrangements and get the right process in place.

Country of origin certificates review, import & export licenses etc. – Do you know what certificates the goods you are exporting require? We can provide a thorough review and organise the relevant certificates for you in time for the changes.
