Helping traders to keep on trading

Customs Declarations are enormously important and a necessity for all businesses that import and export goods.

This is particularly relevant as the UK leaves the EU, as goods will be subject to increased border checks and declarations are estimated to rise from 55 million to 300 million, following the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020. Businesses that import or export goods will need to comply with the rules and make declarations.

ChamberCustoms®, will help Chamber members by guiding you through the changes businesses can expect to encounter and explains how to find more information.

ChamberCustoms is the customs brokerage service from the Chambers of Commerce

It’s different from other brokerage services by harnessing the reach, expertise and knowledge of the Chamber network to offer an unbeatably fast, reliable and compliant service.

We’re the only customs broker in the country to offer a ‘One Stop Shop’ with direct links to all sea, air and road ports and terminals in the UK. We’ll help you to keep in control while we do the hard stuff, acting in your best interests every time.

At the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020, the number of annual customs declarations is forecast to increase from 55 million to around 300 million, with businesses who import goods facing a lot more administration. We launched ChamberCustoms to respond to this demand by offering a simple and reliable brokerage service which will help members and non-members alike.

ChamberCustoms offers an HMRC-compliant service that you can trust.

What our Members Say:

“After taking the plunge to become self-employed, I was a little overwhelmed by the various offerings of help and support available to me. However becoming a member of the Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce was undoubtedly one of the best moves I have made. In the first few months of membership I attended multiple networking events, benefitted from online training sessions and had access to tonnes of advice for small business owners, just like me.

The communications I receive make me feel like a valued member, despite my small company size, and by being able to contribute to the Quarterly Economic Surveys, I know I’m helping to shape economic change. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Chamber of Commerce membership.”
