19/06/08 - All Traders - No. 35/08
1. This notice is to inform you of a new Additional Information Statement to identify import/export declarations required to support ITQ applications with paper licences or without licences.
2. Currently, you can request endorsement of import/export declarations by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) by sending a fax or email request to the HMRC National Clearance Hub (NCH), with a copy of your entry, plus any supporting documents.
3. In order to facilitate such requests, a new Additional Information (AI) Statement is being introduced with immediate effect to enable you to indicate your request in box 44 of the import/export declaration. This will enable the NCH to deal with your request more effectively.
4. The new AI statement code is "CAP11". The wording is:
"These goods are being imported or exported either with a CAP paper licence, or without any licence. Authentication of a copy of the declaration is required under Regulation 1301/2006 article 5 to support an application for an Import Tariff Quota licence."
This will appear in Volume 3, Appendix C9 of the Integrated Tariff of the UK ("the tariff") under CAP Statements.
5. Instructions regarding the completion of AI statements can be found in Volume 3 of the Tariff, paragraph 4.11.1 AI Statement Format.
6. You should ask HM Revenue and Customs only to endorse the number of copy entries necessary to fulfil the criteria for the relevant regulation. Submission of excessive numbers may result in delays to the return of endorsed copy entries.
7. If you wish to request endorsement of a declaration, you should enter the new code "CAP11" in box 44 of your delaration at item level. You do not need to enter any additional text with this code. You will also need to fax a copy of the entry and any supporting documents, with a fax header, requesting endorsement of the declaration for ITQ purposes, to the HMRC National Clearance Hub (NCH) at:
Fax number 0800 496 0699, or by email to email@example.com
8. Please note that this procedure does not apply to imports with an electronic licence, which do not require the endorsement of copy declarations.
