Keep calm and sell on
With ClearCustoms, you can serve your British customers as if Brexit had never happened.
Customs is that simple.
Online shopping as usual
In your online shop, inform your British customers about all costs related to their purchase. In addition to the product price, this includes the required import duties and the import VAT applicable in the UK.
This way, your customers know what costs they will have to pay as soon as they place their order.
Easy through customs
Ship your customer orders with the logistics partner of your choice!
We take care of the customs declaration of your shipments in the UK. Moreover, ClearCustoms pays the duties due to the UK authorities (import duties and import VAT). Completely automatically and in compliance with all requirements and deadlines.
No money, no problems
Your customers are happy about the goods you deliver to their homes at the agreed price and without any subsequently charged costs.
The local delivery service is also happy and fast on its way because no charges have to be collected at the customer’s doorstep.
Automated tax reporting to British authorities
If your company is registered for VAT in the UK and thus has a UK VAT ID, we can optionally prepare the data for your tax return and send it to the UK authorities.
This requires the use of our VATRules database.
Return to sender
Wrong size, a damaged product?
In case of goods returns, we take care of the customs formalities, e.g., the consolidated return of your goods for both export from the UK and re-import into the country from which the goods were shipped.
We are also happy to take care of the correction notifications and refund applications related to returns for you.
