Instructions to give to import agent/carriers to advise them of our import VAT and customs duty requirements - suggested wording


DHL/FEDEX - the University Tax Team has already confirmed with DHL and FEDEX that we wish to use Postponed VAT Accounting and standard Customs Declarations.  However, please do confirm this with them.





We would like to confirm the following:

  • From 1 Jan 2021, we do want to use the postponed VAT accounting (PVA) scheme for all of our imports (EU and Non-EU).
  • From 1 Jan 2021, we do want to use standard declarations for CUSTOMS DUTY purposes for all of our imports (this is different to postponed VAT accounting).

    We do not want to use the CUSTOMS DUTY deferred declarations for EU imports that has been introduced.

  • VAT number: 823 8476 09
  • EORI number: 823 8476 09 000

Would you please confirm that you have updated your records to record our instructions.
