Manufacturing in China

Manufacturing in China

Didn't find your answer?


I have a client who is sending parts over to China to be manufactured and then sent back again. In order for the parts to reach the manufacturer in China a Customs Clearance fee was charged.

My question is, am I able to set off this customs clearance fee against my client's UK VAT liability.

I've searched high and low on this but can't find any clear answers, so any help would be most appreciated!

Customs Clearance Fee

Simple answer is No. A Customs Clearance fee is not a taxable supply but Outside the Scope of VAT.
