Goods permanently imported for exhibitions, fairs or meetings

Post-importation procedure

You must keep a record of the use and disposal of the goods imported. Your record should include full particulars of the name, date and place of the event.

Where security has been provided, you should present your record to Revenue within:

  • one month of the end of the event
  • or
  • six months of the date of importation

whichever is the earlier.

Revenue will arrange to have the security refunded, cancelled or adjusted.

Goods imported for the event that have not been distributed or consumed at the event must be exported or import charges must be paid.
