Customs Requirements from Poland

Both an EU and UK EORI (Economic Operator Registration and Identification Number) is required and provided to border agencies. Read What is an EORI Number for how to get started. More paperwork is often needed and presented to customs post-Brexit depending on what goods you ship, so thoroughly research what you need; otherwise, your shipments will face delays and accrue fees. For further details, visit the UK government advisory page.


Import Requirements

VAT and Duties

Customs duties are due for consignments from the EU to the UK, but with the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement, tariff-free can be claimed if the goods have originated from Poland, and the fact must be in a sworn customs declaration. There are excluded goods, so be sure to research what you are planning to send and additional costs to consider.

Making a Declaration

Customs declarations completed correctly make shipping easy, but even a tiny mistake will mean customs agencies can hold good at the border. You can fill out the commercial shipping declarations for your business, or better yet, hire an expert to ensure you don’t hit unnecessary delays or red tape. Barrington Freight has extensive import declaration experience importing from the UK from Poland to manage the process, and our agents are always on hand to help with documentation as our clients require.

Special Licences and Certificates

Depending on what goods are in your consignment, the EU and UK borders will likely need special licenses and certificates.

We are friendly, easy to work with, honest and we do not charge the earth.

The team at Barrington where incredible at delivering our goods on-time despite the new Brexit regulations on goods being imported. We even didn't pay tax on the returning shipment coming back to German.

Brilliant service. Extremely helpful, and they supported us all the way through the process of transporting goods to mainland Europe, which for anyone who hasn't done that before can seem quite daunting. Would definitely recommend using this company.

Excellent company, very efficient and great communication. Competitive , quick quotes!
We are very satisfied, we would like to thank the team for this with an awesome rating! They handled the delivery of a very sensitive, valuable, gigantic pallet for us at a fair price and without any problems. I mean, out of 4 companies, only they were able to undertake it. Nothing is damaged! We recommend the company to everyone :)
