Introducing an inexpensive and efficient digital solution for UK companies to create and submit transit declarations along with an in-house guarantee post-Brexit.
Post-Brexit, UK companies wishing to transport their goods to and from mainland Europe and beyond now need a transit customs declaration. With our unique customs solution, users can easily and efficiently create and submit transit declarations to the UK Revenue customs system, which once processed are then transferred to the New Computerised Transit System (NCTS) – a network of 34 national customs systems. Plus, we also provide the guarantee that can be up to and in excess of 28% of the total value of the goods being transported.
Why do I need SGS TransitNet now that Brexit has happens?
From 1st January, 2021, the UK has effectively become what is known as, in customs terms, a ‘third country’. As a result, any goods moving from the UK to the EU and vice versa now require a transit declaration.
To submit a transit declaration, companies need a comprehensive customs guarantee along with customs-adapted software. These can be difficult and expensive to obtain and maintain. In the UK SGS TransitNet provides a unique package that offers UK companies a cheaper, more efficient, multinational e-customs transit service – without the need to have your own guarantee or software.
Since the 1st January, 2022 it is no longer be possible to defer import declarations to the UK. In the majority of cases import declarations will need to be pre-lodged before the goods even arrive at the EU exit point. Our TransitNet solution will ensure smooth entry to the UK when raising your T1’s and T2’s that is cost effective and simply to use, stops congestion at the borders and also has the ability to request your goods vehicle movement service (GVMS) and import of products, animals, food and feed system (IPAFFS) documents supporting your import clearance allowing them to be completed in a timely manner. TransitNet is web based software that doesn’t need installing and we also provide free training should you wish to complete your own declarations.
