Amended Advice from Customs ??? EUR1???s

Article Date: 10 April 2012

HM Revenue & Customs have refined their advice regarding the completion of Box 1 and Page 4 of the EUR1 where applications are made by Agents.

If an Agent is completing the form on behalf of a UK exporter there is no requirement to add the Agents name in Box 1 but the Agents signatory and company name will be completed on Page 4. A letter of authority is required as detailed in Notice 827 Section 3.3.

However, if there is a multi-national company involved and they are in another EU country and wish to export goods from a sister company in the UK, then they would use an Agent based in the UK.
