LATVIAN IMPORT CUSTOMS REQUIREMENTS

Customs, VAT and Regulations

VAT Latvia

When shipping from Latvia to UK addresses, it’s necessary to handle various customs procedures, including the processing of VAT notices, commodity codes and, in some cases, excise duty, as well. Latvian companies registered for VAT have the potential to apply a zero rate on goods exported to the UK, provided certain criteria are adhered to. In Latvia, VAT is termed “Pievienotās vērtības nodoklis” (PVN). Latvian standard VAT rate rules comply with the broader EU guidelines. The standard VAT rate in Latvia is 21%, which is slightly lower than the standard rate in some other EU nations.

Goods or ServicesVAT Rate Latvia
Standard taxable goods and services21%
First reduced rate goods and services (e.g., certain medicines and medical equipment, timber products for heating)12%
Second reduced rate goods(e.g.,newspapers)5%
Intra-community and international transport0%
Restrictions

Any Latvia delivery bound to the UK with the following items in the consignment may be subject to additional customs checks:

  • Alcoholic Beverages: Specific limitations and duties apply to the export and import of traditional Latvian alcoholic products, like Riga Black Balsam.
  • Amber: Given the abundance of amber in the Baltic region, there are special regulations on the export of raw and processed amber to protect this natural resource.
  • Cultural and Historical Items: Strict regulations exist covering the export of items with significant cultural or historical importance to Latvia, such as ancient Baltic artifacts and Latvian folk art.
  • Protected Species and Products: Controls under CITES and Latvian law cover the movement of endangered species across international borders with a particular focus on native Baltic flora and fauna.
  • Pharmaceuticals: Rigorous restrictions on the import and export of certain drugs, particularly narcotics and psychotropic substances, are in place, requiring special permissions.
EORI Number Latvia

You will need an EORI (Economic Operator Registration and Identification Number) for the UK and any EU country you ship to and from alongside a range of other customs requirements. See our blog on what is an EORI Number? for more information.

Remember, too, that simply registering with HMRC as an importer of goods from Latvia will not be sufficient – on its own – to be able to use Latvian suppliers. 

Barrington Freight operates as a customs clearance agency as well as a team of expert freight forwarders, so we can help you with all of these matters if you need us to, whether you’re importing or exporting. We have the necessary licensing arrangements in place to oversee exported goods from the UK to Latvia which has the same regulations in place as every other EU state. Therefore, we can help with multiple consignment deliveries that might include some in Latvia and some in other countries, such as those in France, Spain or Slovakia, for instance.

Shipping Routes to Latvia from the UK

Our experienced agents will provide all the help you need, and the best prices too. As British-based Latvia freight forwarders, we deal with all six regions –  Kurzeme, Latgale, Riga, Pieriga, Vidzeme and Zemgale, making shipping in Latvia quick and convenient for all UK companies. We regularly export and import across Latvia visiting the cities of Ventspils, Talsi, Saldus, Kuldiga, Liepaja, Tukums, Jurmala, Riga (the national capital), Jelgava, Ogre, Bauska, Jekabpils, Rezekne, Daugavpils, Kraslava, Balvi, Valmiera, Aluksne, Gulbene, Madona, Cesis and many others. We can deliver Latvian-bound freight to even the smallest village, and our local partner depots know the country like the back of their hand.

Road haulage to Latvia follows a similar journey to that for neighbouring Lithuania; Eurotunnel or the Channel Ports into France, the E40/E17/E34/E30 through Belgium, Holland, Germany and Poland and the E67 through Lithuania into Latvia itself.

However, when shipping to Latvia from the UK, routes can vary depending on the weight of traffic and specific destination in the country. Typically, we’ll use one of the following routes when shipping in Latvia.
