Bulk import multiple low value parcels from January 1

From January 1st you will be able to declare two or more low-value parcels into a single import declaration using a reduced data set compared to a standard full import declaration. You may use this process where:

  • each postal packet is sent from a country or territory outside the UK to a recipient in Great Britain
  • at the time of import, each postal packet contains goods with a relief from import duty available to the recipient of the goods
  • the postal packets are imported in such manner as may be specified in a notice published by HMRC
  • the total value of each postal packet imported is £135 or less
  • the VAT for each postal packet is subject to UK supply VAT, rather than import VAT
