Beer flows freely, thanks to e-Customs

[ November 21, 2014   //   ]

Scottish brewer Islay Ales has taken advantage of e-customs’ free service to help low to medium volume exporters tackle UK Customs requirements.

Steve Bavin, Director, Islay Ales said the small brewery was looking to export its beers outside the EU, and needed a system that could meet the Excise Movement Control System (EMCS) requirements with a minimum of fuss and effort whilst also providing us with some business benefits. “We found just what we needed with Webdecs.”

This free service from e-customs is an alternative to the free service currently available from the Government Gateway.It offers extra features – for instance there is no need to rekey standing data and there is ready access to past declaration details.

Managing director of e-customs, Alun Davies, added: “All low volume exporters really must explore what we are making freely available and compare it to the service provided by the Government because this is an opportunity to easily upgrade and improve their procedures to current best practice at no cost.”
