Customs regulations cover every facet of the import and export process in the UK. HMRC sets rules that traders must follow, encompassing goods classification, controlled exports, duty payments, VAT, safety and security declarations, and more.
A breach in customs compliance can lead to financial penalties, trade activity suspension, or criminal charges.
clearBorder, as a seasoned customs compliance consultant, ensures your trade is both compliant and efficient. We review your processes, provide comprehensive training for your teams, and offer personal support when needed.
Export controls apply to the trade of sensitive technologies and, regulated by the Department for Business and Trade in the UK, can lead to severe penalties, operational suspension, or even imprisonment if they are breached.
We offer expert advice to assist you throughout the export control process, from preparation to compliance maintenance. Our support ensures that your exports adhere to the conditions specified in the relevant licence, addressing elements such as sanctioned entities and the ‘end-use’ of technology.
