A customs bonded warehouse is a secure space which allows you to store goods imported from outside of the UK before they reach their final destination. Importing and exporting from foreign trade zones can become costly, so bonded warehousing is an advantageous way to manage the expenses – for example import duty that allows to defer VAT charges until the goods are sold (i.e. withdrawn for consumption) or removed from the bonded warehouse.
HMRC regulates all UK Customs Bonded Warehouses with strict import and export rules and regulations, which are regularly checked to ensure they are conforming with foreign trade zones. A bonded warehouse storage facility where imported merchandise can be processed and sold must be approved by HMRC (import and export) to allow for customs entry. By working with The Storage Place, you can use our bonded warehouse and improve your cash flow.
