Metro dots the i’s and crosses the t’s

Metro’s import and export services include a total documentation service that embraces commercial, compliance and financial requirements.

Metro’s documentation service is entirely bespoke to each client, with a situation and needs analysis available without charge or obligation.

The correct paperwork is vital for every shipment and differs by country, so it is critical that you get it right, or you risk having them stuck at customs because they are incomplete.

We help you supply the right paperwork, every time, to ensure that your goods always arrive on time. Available for free circulation, bonded storage or transfer to an alternative customs regime, including IPR and OPR.

Our in-house experts will guide you and produce the full range of original, certified and customs documents required for compliance and bank presentation including:

  • EUR1 Movement Certificate
  • European Certificate of Origin
  • Arab-British Certificate of Origin
  • SASO
  • ISPM 15

Metro’s systems are integrated with HMRC’s declaration system CHIEF and its replacement CDS, so we ensure that you meet all National Export Systems requirements regardless of export point and that you can submit your post-shipment Intrastat declarations.

If you are moving goods within the EU we use our community transit guarantee to use the appropriate T1 or T2 status and ensure VAT and import duty liability is met correctly.
