The customs warehousing procedure allows traders to store non-European Union (EU) goods without payment of customs charges or Valued-Added Tax (VAT). Normal rules regarding import or export prohibitions or restrictions continue to apply to goods in a warehouse.
For more information about warehousing, please see Further guidance.
