Bonded Warehouses In The UK

We receive many calls and enquiries to our office here at Whichwarehouse in respect of how to find a list of warehouses in the UK that offer Customs Bonded storage & warehousing services. As you may well be aware, no such list exists in the public domain. Specialised warehousing in the UK is not as widely advertised as ambient and temperature controlled facilities and therefore contact details are hard to find when it comes to a company requiring bonded storage solutions. Bonded Warehouses In The UK[1]

That s where Whichwarehouse can assist. We have a small number of third party logistics[2] providers in the UK covering various locations who as well as offering ambient and temperature controlled warehouse facilities, can also provide Customs Bonded storage and warehousing logistics services.

HMRC Bonded warehouses

If you import expensive goods into the UK such as electrical items or alcohol you might wish to defer the payment of duty and VAT until you sell the goods. There are specific warehouses available throughout the UK (predominantly located and found near major UK ports) that can assist you with this aspect of your business. This option allows the importer to pass on the cost to their customers at the point of sale (P.O.S) rather than having a large outlay at the time of import. Another reason a company might be seeking a bonded warehouse is if the goods are being imported and then re-exported from the UK where duty or VAT may not be applicable. Bonded warehouses must be approved by HMRC[3] in order to store imported goods or goods that are to be re-exported from the UK. We strongly advise all customers to speak to HMRC if you are looking into wet or dry bonded warehousing as they will be able to provide you with up-to-date information to ensure you have all the facts. The paperwork involved with the procedures and regulations that need to be adhered to can take up to 6 weeks, or more, to process and therefore it is recommended that you put in your applications as soon as possible. This is especially necessary when importing alcohol as companies importing certain alcoholic goods will require a WOWGR[4] licence (Warehousekeepers and Owners of Warehoused Goods Regulations (UK). When filing your paperwork with HMRC you will need to provide details of the warehouse you intend to store your goods in. Therefore again, it is vital that you look into this in plenty of time before you import the goods as you will need all arrangements in place before you can bring the goods to the UK. These links might assist you in your research of bonded warehousing regulations.

To make your search easier, we are listing the details below of the current 3PL s listed in the Whichwarehouse network who have HMRC customs bonded warehouse space available, so that you might contact them direct to enquire as to how they can assist your business operations. Please refer to Whichwarehouse as the source when calling or emailing.
