GB import declaration to be lodged after the event. This is a very popular option as it avoids any stress at the frontier and gives traders time to gather import data without worrying about delaying the goods or vehicle.The driver only requires the EORI number of the importer to be allowed to proceed. There are some restrictions but not many. It also gives you time to verify the country of origin to avoid incorrect declarations or, potentially, an unexpected duty bill at a later stage.
The deferred entry scheme was initially scheduled to run up to the end of June 2021. It was been extended to end of December 2021. This does not mean you have until the end of 2021 to submit import declarations.
The import entry must be submitted within 175 days of importation. The entry can be consolidated to save money. We are already handling thousands of these declarations and have streamlined processes in place.
