A T1 document is a transport document needed for goods coming from outside the EU or not yet released into free circulation. These goods cannot be traded because import duties and VAT have to be paid first. Sometimes customs clearance is an attractive option when you are trading the goods because it gives you a liquidity advantage. A T1 transit document offers the solution!
What are T1 documents required for?
For goods which are subject to transit, T1 documents are required from Customs. T1 transit documents are also needed when: goods are entering the EU and you don’t know if they’ll stay in the European Union, goods are entering the EU for storage in a customs warehouse and outbound shipments are shipped from your customs warehouse.
T1 documents are produced and forwarded to you by email in order you may arrange onward transport of your shipment. At the final destination the T1 document needs to be closed in order to avoid additional tax from customs.
