Importing Personal Effects to the UK
UK Customs (HMRC) have announced a new online process relating to importing household goods and personal effects to the UK as Transfer of Residence (ToR). Shippers are now required to make an application to HMRC prior to shipping from outside of the EU in order to claim VAT and duty relief for importing personal belongings.
The shipper must complete and sign the application form and provide any supporting documentation.
This is currently a "print-and-submit" procedure - all applications and supporting documentation must be sent by email, once signed, to [email protected].
The application must be made prior to shipping any consignments to the UK. If the applicant is successful in obtaining Transfer of Residence relief, the applicant will then be awarded unique declaration information in the form of an authorisation number, which can be included on the customs invoice (packing list).
