Obtain a T1 transit document for the movement of goods across multiple borders

It’s not always easy to know exactly when you need a T1 transit document, but some instances include:

  • When you don’t know whether goods entering the EU will remain in the territory
  • When your goods enter a different EU member state, prior to their final destination
  • When goods enter the EU for storage under customs control
  • When outbound consignments are sent from your customs entrepôt
  • When goods are placed under bond between the port and the warehouse/destination

With Gaston Schul, you don’t need to worry about the requirements. Our knowledgeable team is here to help. We’ll explain the merits of a T1 document, request a licence for a customs entrepôt for those that need it, and submit declarations on your behalf. The result? You get certainty in customs matters.

T2 transit documents

Move goods through non-EU countries with a T2 transit document

The free movement of EU-origin goods only applies to countries within the European Union. As soon as goods transit through a non-EU country, like Switzerland or another EFTA country, a valid T2 transit document is required. Our team will help you:

  • Make a T2 transit declaration
  • File an accompanying export declaration when needed
Reduce import duty and VAT costs

We make sure you don’t overpay duties and VAT

You shouldn’t pay more than you have to. That’s why our European customs experts make use of every opportunity by using the customs transit procedure to defer the payment of import duties and VAT for an extended period — or in some instances, avoid paying it completely.

Transit Declarations FAQs

What is a T1 transit document?

A T1 transit document is an EU customs procedure that can be used between the EU and Common Transit countries, which includes the UK. The document allows the movement of uncleared goods across international borders whilst delaying the need to pay for duties and submit customs declarations until they arrive at their final destination or are re-exported. This document also ensures that while the goods are in transit, they are under customs control.

What is a T2 transit document?

A T2 transit document is used within the European Union for the transit of goods that are in free circulation within the EU. This means the goods have either been produced in the EU or have been imported and all relevant customs duties and taxes have been paid. The T2 document facilitates the movement of these goods travelling via countries that are not part of the EU customs territory, such as Switzerland or Norway.
