Any assistance would be highly appreciated

Hi @F.DSA, you could refer to the WCO’s list:

Thank You Praveen much appreciated

@F.DSA be sure you (or your clearing agent) clears the goods correctly to obtain import duty and VAT relief - details can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/pay-no-import-duty-and-vat-on-medical-supplies-equipment-and-protective-garments-covid-19

Thank You Kennedy, apparently the NO DUTY/VAT is only applicable if the supplies are Intended for NHS only

@F.DSA not necessarily - see the link for full details. If you are not sure whether or not you can gain the duty and vat relief , you can request confirmation by contacting the National Import Relief Unit (NIRU) by email niru@hmrc.gov.uk

Thank You Kennedy I did contact NIRU and their response was the same if the End user is NHS or state organisation including state bodies then we are exempted…Thank You once again for your help
