Using Fast Parcel Operators to import and export

Introduction

This guide helps exporters to understand the issues surrounding the use of Fast Parcel Operators (FPOs) for imports and exports. It covers customs duty reliefs and fast parcel operators and using fast parcel operators as a third-party declarant.

HM Revenue & Customs has approved a number of FPOs for simplified export procedures using a Memorandum of Understanding. The guide explains what Memorandums of Understanding mean for FPOs, and their duties and liabilities to you when making customs declarations on your behalf.
