Customs Clearance Service
UK, EU & global customs clearance service.
Since January 1st 2022, all hauliers entering the UK must produce an EU export declaration and a GB import declaration (full or simplied). These two declarations need to be loaded into a Goods Movement Reference (GMR) via the UK Goods Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS). To do this, a GB Government Gateway account and a GB EORI number is required. All hauliers leaving the UK will need to use the GVMS system to upload the GB export declaration and a T1 or EU import declaration.
