EUR1 Movement Certificate

International trade under preference allows you to import and/or export goods at a lower or nil rate of customs duty. The rate of duty payable depends on the type of goods, whether you’re importing or exporting, where the goods are deemed to have come from – the ‘originating’ country – and their destination. The UK has trade agreements with numerous contries around the world with more being added since we left the EU.

Originating goods are either:

  • wholly produced in the UK; or

  • have been sufficiently processed in the UK to be classed as “originating”.

All businesses completing EUR1 documents must read each individual Trade Agreement to understand the origin rules for the goods being exportered.

You do not have to use these documents. Only use them when you can prove the goods are originating and you hold the required evidence.

The origin rules for goods of all Tariff headings are set out within the Trade Agreements. These may vary according to the Tariff heading and the country to which the goods are exported.
