The Descartes UK Software Solution for Customs & Bonded Warehousing

If you’re importing goods into the UK then using a Customs Warehouse can help both suspend the payment of duty and VAT on imports and negate the need to pay duty twice on items which you ultimately intend to export again. Duties will become payable when products are delivered onto their next destination, or if goods are removed from the UK Customs Warehouse and entered into the 'home use' UK market.
