Customs Insights

Our specialist group division; Customs Insights Consultancy Limited was set up over 10 years ago and has worked with a large number of UK importers to guide them on the right approach to duty and customs legislation.

We use the Ricardo Duty Management software to provide a full, product-driven duty management solution that is integral to the successful implementation and operation of duty management, bonded warehousing and other regimes such as OPR and IPR.

In addition, our Customs Insights Consultancy arm also performs quarterly audits on our customs operations to ensure that product classification meets due diligence and is simultaneously cost effective. Howdens would be included within these audits and results presented as part of our account management reporting.
