Customs Compliance Audit

All UK companies that trade in goods with overseas countries will, at some time, be subject to an audit from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

An audit of a three-year import/export period is required (under UK customs legislation) to review a company’s international trade activities. The aim is to ensure the UK’s borders are working effectively and the correct taxes are being paid to HM Treasury.

These audits can be time-consuming, stressful, and potentially expensive for companies found not to meet requirements. HMRC expects a company to have satisfactory procedures in place to effectively control the accuracy of the customs declarations submitted in its name. We are here to help.

Our audit programme helps you prepare for any HMRC customs compliance check. We will work with you to make sure you are prepared and, most importantly, compliant and meeting legal obligations.

The Audit includes:

  • REVIEW of your customs exposure, with a
  • SITE VISIT to identify any areas of concern in knowledge or processes
  • TAILORED PROGRAMME including actions or training options to help make you fully compliant.
