EUR1 Declarations updated

HMRC have now updated their guidance for the declarations to be made on page 4 of an EUR1 application as follows:

(a) Exporters who have manufactured/produced the exported goods
‘The goods shown on the movement certificate were **manufactured/produced by the exporter and are classified under (4 figure tariff heading). They satisfy the appropriate qualifying process in the preferential agreement
**Delete where appropriate

(bi) Exporters who have bought in goods for export in the same state (goods manufactured/produced in the UK)
‘The goods shown on the movement certificate were **manufactured/produced in the UK and are classified under (4 figure tariff heading). Evidence of their originating status in one of the forms specified on GOV.UK is held by **me/us.’
** Delete where appropriate

(bii) Exporters who have bought in goods for export in the same state (goods **manufactured/produced in any other country)
‘The goods were imported from…………………… (Name of country) under cover of a **movement certificate /invoice declaration and are being re-exported in the same state. The goods are classified under……………’ (4 figure tariff heading).
** Delete where appropriate

According to HMRC, this declaration can only be used in very specific circumstances relating to the UK Israel FTA.

These declarations will be updated on electronic systems.

Replacement EUR1’s

HMRC have said that they cannot think of any circumstances where it would now be appropriate to issue a Replacement EUR1 though they are still referred to in some of the guidance.

If you feel you need to issue a replacement EUR1 please speak to our International Trade team for guidance by calling 01223 237414.
