Export invoice declaration required with immediate effect

As the withdrawal agreement comes to a close, we have further clarification as to what will be required in order for your export goods to be delivered without additional customs delays or the detaining of goods.

A statement of origin will be required with immediate effect:-

The statement on origin must be provided on an invoice, or any other commercial document (excluding a bill of lading), describing the originating product in sufficient detail to enable its identification.

The text for a statement on origin is as follows:

(Period: from___________ to __________ (1*))

The exporter of the products covered by this document (**EORI / Exporter Reference No ... (2)) declares that,

except where otherwise clearly indicated, these products are of ... (3) preferential origin.

……………………………………………………………..............................

(4)

(Place and date)

……………………………………………………………..............................

(Name of the exporter)
 
Notes

*The numbers ‘(1,2,3 etc)’ refer to notes in the EU / UK Trade Cooperation Agreement (TCA) - For full details refer to page 482 of the TCA)

**Please refer to flow guidance above as to when the EORI number or Exporter Reference No is required.

Exporting country:

- Contact all shippers and inform them of the origin statement requirement
- All EU shippers should be advised of the requirement to register with REX urgently.
- Implement checks before shipment to ensure that the correct origin statement is present on the commercial invoice for any goods entitled to preference (ie UK or EU origin)*.

Importing country:

- Ensure that the importer understands that duty will be payable if goods are not of UK or EU origin or the correct origin statement is missing.
- Request that the importer instructs the seller to make the correct preferential origin declaration.
- On import discuss with the importer the status of the goods and duties (if any) payable before submitting the declaration.
