Customs Network Ltd
INTERNATIONAL TRADE CONSULTANTS
CONSULTING WITH PURPOSE
Customs Network is committed to enabling clients to drive out unnecessarily high costs of customs duties, recovering overpaid duties and ensuring peace of mind from compliance with the complex customs rules and regulations.
To assist in achieving duty savings whilst remaining compliant, we provide “Best Practice” import and/or export operational guidance and manuals for businesses to implement or, if preferred, we offer a fully out-sourced import and/or export service operation. This includes the operation and monitoring of all trade facilitation regimes and HMRC reporting.
MSS Review Subscription Service
MSS data is the consolidation of import and export data submitted to HMRC on behalf of businesses by customs clearance agents. The MSS is identified against EORI numbers declared at the time of import and/or export from the UK.
MSS data is available from HMRC which allows detailed analysis of actual information submitted to HMRC on businesses behalf.
The review and analysis of the MSS data allows for ensuring customs compliance and identifying import tax saving opportunities.
We are approved to obtain and analyse this data on behalf of our clients, breaking down the technical data into meaningful interpretations. We review the following aspects and provide a detailed report for management reporting purposes:
Amount of customs duty and other import taxes were paid
Use of Free Trade Agreements
Understanding when preferential duty is not claimed
Use of customs reliefs
Commodity code review
List of agents involved in the declarations to HMRC
Particular elements as requested by businesses
We provide technical understanding, innovative customs planning ideas and decades of practical experience working with some of the world’s largest organisations to turn apparently unavoidable customs costs into a prime business asset capable of generating dramatic savings and operational improvements.
Understanding the valuation, classification, preference declarations being made on your behalf throughout the supply chain and understanding the origin of the goods supplied to you within the European Union, will result in the information to allow the optimum amounts of customs duty and import VAT to be paid. This results in lower product and administration costs and therefore improved cashflow and increased margins.
Not only can we assist you in realising the significant benefits available through customs planning, if required, we can provide a full managed outsource service. This will ensure that the financial rewards can be achieved with minimal impact on your day to day business resources.
‘We were first introduced to Customs Networks and Ian Dudley in 2010 and immediately he was able to provide us with high quality practical advice which has had a real impact on the efficiency of our delivery of humanitarian aid to people affected by disasters. He introduced the idea of operating a customs warehouse and has assisted us throughout the application, implementation and operation of the warehouse.
His robust solution to our situation has proved invaluable and we cannot thank him enough for the work that he and his friendly team have done.’
