An EUR1 certificate, also known as a Movement Certificate, is a type of export document which allows the exportation of goods at a reduced or nil rate of duty between countries which participate in the scheme. The goods being shipped under an EUR1 must originate from within the European Union, and the preference system only applies to countries where certain trade agreements exist with the EU. Without an EUR-1, the full rate of import duty would be payable.
The following countries are participants of the EUR1 scheme:
• Ceuta and Melilla
• Faroe Islands
• South Africa
• West Bank/Gaza Strip
Once an EUR1 has been issued, it will be stamped by a Chamber of Commerce, acting as an agent for HMRC. We operate an in-house Chamber of Commerce service in partnership with the London Chamber of Commerce, enabling us to arrange for EUR1’s to be instantly stamped. EUR1’s can be applied for using our online platform, Quickcert, which enables our clients to obtain their EUR1 certificates within an hour. Alternatively, we can produce an EUR1 certificate on our client’s behalf through our document preparation service.
