Frontier Declarations

Action Plan Point 6.

Frontier Declarations – Only applicable to UK Importers

You need to decide what type of Import Declaration you want your UK Broker to arrange and pre lodge.

For UK Importers between 1/1/21 and 30/6/21 you need to decide how you want to arrange your import declaration.

Your options are either a full frontier declaration or (up until 30/6/21) a simplified frontier declaration (sometimes referred to as a delayed or deferred declaration).

Our recommendation is a full frontier declaration but we can arrange either. When making your selection please be aware of the following.



Once finalised (when the goods enter the country) all cost are settled, the goods then become cleared and you have no further actions to take.


If you elect for a delayed declaration then you will have some additional responsibilities.

  • You will need to complete an Entry into Declarants Records (EIDR) more information about this can be found on the link below.
  • Within 6 months of the goods arriving into the UK you will need to arrange a supplementary declaration.
