If you decide to export goods, you should consider government fees that could be involved, including:
- the cost of export import licences
- fees due to overseas customs or the government fees in the country you're shipping to
- costs of certificates proving the country of origin of the goods
Other things you need to do
If you're moving goods inside the EU most goods (unless hazardous) can be exported without customs controls or charges.
If you're moving goods outside the EU, you need to declare your exports to HMRC using the National Export System.
