Get proof of origin for your goods

Back to News

If you’re using a preference from a preference agreement or the Generalised Scheme of Preferences, you will need to prove the origin of your goods.

If you’re importing or exporting goods with a country that has a preferential arrangement, the goods are likely to have a reduced or nil rate of duty based on the origin of those goods.

Unless the agreement says you do not need a proof of origin, you’ll need to:

  • prove to HMRC that you can claim preference for goods you are importing
  • give the person receiving your goods evidence of the origin so they can claim preference
