Single import declarations for multiple low value parcels (CIP8/2020)

From 1 January 2021, parcel operators will be able to continue making a single declaration for multiple consignments of low value parcels imported into Great Britain.

You’ll be able to make a single customs declaration which will have fewer data fields than a full customs declaration. The additional information about the goods must be kept in your own records.

You’ll not be able to use this simplified process if your goods are:

  • subject to excise duties
  • restricted
  • prohibited

You’ll need to be authorised to use this process and we will publish more information in the autumn about the requirements you must meet to be authorised.

We’ll informally consult with industry about this simplified process over the summer.
