Export cargo compliance, regulations and documentation services
Find exporting declarations and codes confusing?
If you are exporting from the UK, you must classify your goods as part of the declaration, including a commodity code and a Customs Procedure Code (CPC). The declaration allows HMRC to check that you're complying with export controls, for example licensing requirements, special measures and statistical purposes. You must provided documentation to verify the shipment data which the Spatial AEO-C team will use to ensure your compliance. Spatial Global have a team of trained professionals providing UK Export Documentation Services who can assist with this.

What happens if you get your export documentation wrong?
There are potentially expensive consequences for misclassifying your goods, so it’s crucial to get your product classification correct. You can classify your products by using either the Schedule B or Harmonised System (HS) codes. The law says that it is the responsibility of the business that is exporting the goods to ensure the correct code is used, and you could be legally liable if the wrong code is applied. You or your customer could also be paying the wrong amount in import tariffs. An exporter who uses the wrong code for their goods can receive a heavy fine as well as having their shipment confiscated. Almost all countries operate tariff codes that comply with the Harmonised System (HS). All countries use the same six digit codes, to which they can add up to six further digits in order to refine the definitions according to local requirements.
Did you know 30-50% of entries are potentially misclassified?
Many countries now require pre-shipment information before the goods are sent, and the local tariff code will usually be among the information required. Spatial Global enables you to stay ahead of constantly changing freight regulations and documentation requirements. Appropriate documentation is essential for all international trade. But constantly changing regulations and procedures can make it difficult to stay on top of requirements.

How do you provide evidence of source?
Many countries on the receiving end of UK exports require evidence of source – usually an invoice or a certificate of origin, or both. These must be certified as authentic by the appropriate authority, and different countries have different approaches. Some require certification by a chamber of commerce, while others insist on full legalisation by the appropriate foreign embassy. Spatial Global's specialists ensure that customers' export and import documentation is prepared and authorised quickly and smoothly, regardless of the agreed Incoterm and whether or not we are also responsible for managing the freight.
