Why do you need export documentation?

Documentation is required in some countries to clear customs, or, it can be required as proof of origin in order to claim preferential duty rates, or for banking purposes when payment is by Letter of Credit. Letters confirming UK registration and/or Chamber membership may also be required to accompany tenders or contracts.

  • EC Certificates of Origin forms

  • Arab-British Certificates of Origin forms

  • EUR1 forms (preferential duty)
