UK Export Customs Clearance | FAQs

Which documents are required for export customs clearance?

Export customs clearance normally requires the following documents: 

  • Commercial invoice 
  • Packing list 
  • Movement certificate (e.g. Bill of Lading / CMR) 

Depending on the type of commodity and the location of export as well as the importing country, additional documents might be required. This can be for licensing, preference, or quota reasons. 

If you need advice on export clearance documentation, speak to a member of Customs Support today. Our declarants process commodities of all kinds across Europe and the UK, and we will be happy to assist you with your query. 

How long does an export clearance take?

Export customs clearance is processed in two stages. The first stage is the creation of the export declaration. The second stage of export clearance is when the shipment leaves the border and customs authorities process the declaration as live. This completes the export customs clearance. 

How long your export customs clearance will take depends on the complexity, but the processing takes minutes once the declaration is submitted to customs. However, this can be extended if customs have a query or would like to conduct a physical or document inspection on the goods before departure.

How much does it cost to process an export customs clearance?

The cost of an export customs clearance varies depending on the location, the amount of equipment being processed, how often you export, and whether any licensing or inspections are required. 

Export customs clearance is generally cheaper than import clearance due to there being no taxes to pay on most goods leaving a country. However, in countries where there are less exports than imports (like the UK), skilled export agents can be less common so the price can be higher. 

Customs Support have skilled export declarants in the UK and throughout Europe, providing businesses like yours with fast, accurate, and compliant clearance every day.
