Hi Paul
There are not any problems from the shipping side of things the consignee may need a permit/ licence for import into Hong Kong.
If you need any help with the shipping need a quote or any questions please let me know

Hi Paul,

With excise goods like beer your customer would likely benefit from making an EMCS declaration to HMRC in advance of the movement of goods to avoid having to pay excise duty. For a non-European destination like Hong Kong the EMCS covers the journey from their warehouse to the air/sea port, which I guess is the transport you are undertaking for them.
You'll probably know if a declaration has been made as an ARC will appear on the paperwork.

Make sure that the NES declaration includes the ARC in box 40 as the departure message will close the ARC too.

Let me know if we can help as we have EMCS and NES systems appropriate to manage these shipments.

Thanks,

Ian

Hello,

Information on the Customs requirements for exporting is given in HMRC Public Notice 275. All notices can be viewed on the GOV.UK website at www.gov.uk by typing ‘Notice 275’ in the search box and selecting the following links from the search results: > Notice 275 “Customs export procedures” a guide to UK export procedures using the National Export System.

Further detailed information regarding exporting goods outside the EU can be found by using the following linkhttps://www.gov.uk/exporting-goods-from-the-eu-to-a-third-country-outside-the-eu

I would also suggest that you contact the Customs Authorities in the importing countries to ascertain if there are any import restrictions on such items.
