Posted on 13.03.2020

UK Bonded Warehouses are a great way to manage cash flow through your business. With today’s fluctuating exchange rates post Brexit, choosing a bonded warehouse to store your stock and equipment without paying import duty or VAT is a wise choice.

While your goods are in safe hands with AMCO customs bonded warehouse, your stock, which would usually incur duty or import VAT, is suspended until sold. This gives your business the flexibility to develop a sales strategy to suit the current marketplace. But what other benefits are there?

Speedy sales with warehousing and distribution

With the massive increase in online purchasing, it’s of the highest priority to supply to retailers and direct clients with quick turnaround deliveries. Usually, your stock is packed as one very large consignment which is then broken down as sales are made. You will be issued with a bond which ensures no revenue loss due to taxation while your goods remain in the warehouse. Storing your stock with suspended fees allows you to take good advantage of increases in exchange rates when purchasing and the flexibility to offer a speedy sell. Bonded warehouses are often affiliated with freight forwarding companies, which gives you the ease of moving and shipping your goods when you’re ready.
