A customs bonded warehousing allows you to store goods imported from outside of the EU. Import duty and VAT charges are deferred until the goods are sold or removed from the customs warehouse, which bring many benefits to businesses who import goods.
What are the benefits?
Improve cash flow
Fluctuating demand may mean that goods sell slowly, therefore duty can be paid according to demand. If the goods are re-exported, duty will not be payable in the UK but instead it will be paid in the country of destination, avoiding double payment of duty.
Improve customer service
Goods can be imported and stored in the warehouse well in advance of any seasonal peaks so they are available immediately for customers, improving your service.
