Import Export Hub

Welcome to our new site

Welcome to our new site to assist University of Cambridge staff involved with the international movement of goods (imports and exports) and the sale and purchase of services to overseas organisations and individuals.

Our new Import Export Hub aims to better support Departments and bring together existing pockets of expertise within the University, leading to greater shared knowledge and experience in dealing with this complex area.

Import Export Hub

The Import Export Hub is here to support University of Cambridge Departments to follow best practice with International movements of physical goods; improving import & export compliance, managing tax liabilities and assisting with customs clearance instructions.

Working closely with the University Tax team, as well as collaborating with the Health & Safety office and the Research Safety Office (RSO), the Import Export Hub brings together specialist expertise to help Departments navigate the complexities that international shipping brings, including:

  • customs clearance
  • import VAT & duty costs
  • tax reliefs
  • product classification
  • valuation
  • post-entry auditing
