Do you use an ATA Carnet when you take your equipment overseas for an event, to ensure that you don’t have to pay duty or tax when you bring it back home?
The ATA Carnet system, now operated in 74 countries worldwide, is the passport for your goods which ensures you have no unexpected surprises on your return.
Obtaining an ATA Carnet
In the UK ATA Carnets for goods to be temporarily exported from the UK can be purchased from Chambers of Commerce and you should contact your local Chamber to find your nearest issuing Chamber. Issuing Chambers include Belfast, Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol, Dorset (Poole), Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle-upon-Tyne (Durham), Northampton, Norwich, Nottingham, Portsmouth, Southampton and Thames Valley.
The Chamber of Commerce will be able to tell you if an ATA carnet can be issued for the temporary export you plan and they will also advise you of the fee payable and the security required. They will then provide you with a signed and stamped ATA Carnet for you to take with you on your journey.
