On February 1, 2020, the United Kingdom left the European Union. For this reason, consignments from the United Kingdom are subject to customs procedures.

The United Kingdom has an agreement with the European Union which states that if the invoice states the preferential sentence in the correct wording and the goods originate from the United Kingdom, then the value of the duty will be reduced to CZK 0.

Correct wording of the declaration of origin:

The exporter of the products covered by this document (Exporter Reference No „GB81234567897) declares that, except where otherwise clearly indicated, these products are of UK preferential origin. British Furniture Ltd.

The declaration must contain:

  • EORI number of the UK exporter
  • Origin of UK goods
  • the name of the exporter at the end of the declaration
