HMRC launches the Advance Valuation Ruling Service for importers
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has launched the Advance Valuation Ruling Service (AVRS), a new service that gives importers legal certainty that their chosen customs valuation method is correct.
When importing goods into the UK, traders must work out the value of their goods to calculate their Customs Duty and import VAT.
Traders will apply online for an Advanced Valuation Ruling where HMRC will confirm the method used to calculate the value is correct. It is legally-binding for 3 years and the trader will use this information to calculate the value of their goods on their import declaration.
