The Incoterms are a set of 11 individual rules issued by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) which define the responsibilities of sellers and buyers for the sale of goods in international transactions. Of primary importance is that each Incoterms rule clarifies the tasks, costs, and risks to be borne by buyers and sellers in these transactions. Familiarizing yourself with Incoterms will help improve smoother transactions by clearly defining who is responsible for what and each step of the transaction. The Incoterms 2020 rules are updated and grouped into two categories reflecting modes of transport.

Every cross border shipment of goods must be clear by customs before it can be imported or exported. However, navigating the customs clearance process requires some additional document preparation and familiarity with the rules and regulations in UK. During clearance of goods for import or export you have to present a several number of documents: invoice, CMR, packing list, consignment, permits if needed, certificates and ect.
Customs control involves documenting import / export. A specific list of required documents depends on several factors:
the direction of movement of goods (export or import);
target moving goods across the customs border of the country;
selected customs procedure, form of payment and conditions of carriage;
product tariff code, ect.
Though the extra paperwork and official inspections may seem daunting, the customs process for shipping freight is less complicated than you may think—especially if you partner with a reputable customs broker to avoid unexpected delays or fees.
A commodity code is a ten-digit number allocated to goods to classify imports to UK or exports from UK. Every item will fall under a commodity code – and this commodity code dictates your duty rating, as well as alerts you to any import or export restrictions.
For all UK imports and exports Customs Commodity Codes are used to ensure the correct declaration of the goods.
The responsibility for providing correct Commodity Codes for the import and export of your goods is upon yourself. So let’s take a look at just why a Commodity Code is so important, and where you can go to ensure that you are providing the right code. We can help you to choose the right commodity code.
