What is a Customs Declaration?

A customs declaration (or C88 SAD) is the paperwork that is required to get goods through customs. Previously goods that moved around the EU did not require a customs declaration due to free movement of goods. Since 1 January 2021 a customs declaration is required for all EU Imports and Exports.

  • HMRC understands that people in the UK want to help those affected by the invasion of Ukraine and we are aware that the British public has already responded with immense generosity, donating millions of pounds to support those impacted by the war.
  • However, in line with advice from the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office and the Charity Commission, HMRC recommend that individuals and organisations wanting to help should give money through the Disasters and Emergencies Committee campaign (launched on 3 March) and other trusted charities and humanitarian aid organisations, rather than donating goods and seeking to send or drive them to the region.
  • Disasters and Emergency Committee has launched their Ukraine fund and the UK Government has pledged to match public contributions from the public pound for pound, up to £20 million. More information can be found here and eligible UK taxpayers can Gift Aid donations.
