Our friendly team will ease the process of clearing your goods as they arrive or depart the UK. We guarantee a prompt, reliable service and understand the pressure of making deliveries on time. Our aim is to work with you to ensure your business needs are met & to make the clearance process as smooth as possible.

With badges across the UK and direct links to CHIEF & various portals, DCL can clear both inventory and non-inventory goods. ‘IPR,’ ‘into’ & ‘out’ of bond and ‘Returned Goods’ are just a few of the regimes that can be arranged on your behalf.

Government Department Holds

From time-to-time government departments may take an interest in your goods but our team has experience with each specific procedure and will liaise with the relevant bodies in a timely and efficient manner. In addition to providing relevant information and documents upon request, DCL will communicate with you every step of the way to allow your business to maintain control of the movement of your goods. More importantly, their dedication will minimise unnecessary charges, such as, rent and demurrage.

Payment of Duty & Vat

Although the UK has many Trade Agreements across the globe payment of import Duty & Vat may still be applicable. DCL will arrange all payments to HMRC on your behalf prior to arrival to ease the pressure and to ensure Route 6, non-controlled goods clear immediately. Deferment & PVA methods can also be arranged at the time of import, all we ask is for clear instructions with your clearance request.

All importers & exporters must confirm which tariff code is to be declared for their goods. Indeed, this can be a daunting process but DCL are here to offer guidance if required. In addition, our team are up to-date with UK legislation & Trade Agreements and will apply preferential rates where available to avoid overpayment of taxes.
