Sending goods to sister company europe

Question posted by Alison Chapman, on behalf of Tencate Advanced Armour in SN3 5HY Swindon

Can you confirm for me if I need to apply for a export licence for the following goods:

If Our company in Denmark supplied us boards that they manufacture and we then cut them to the specified shapes that they needed, and sent them back to them. Do I need to apply for an export licence to return the boards to our company .

Thank you

Alison Chapman

There is generally no need to obtain an export licence to return the boards.

Thank you for your reply it is much appreciated.

What if we actaully made the GRP boards here and sent them to our sister Company in Denmark would we then need to obtain an Export licence.

This should not make a difference.

Dear Alison
My name is Chris Willers and I run an export services company called Access to Export Ltd based near Cambridge. The answer to your question really depends on the nature of the goods. Are these military goods? If they are then they are controlled and probably need a licence. Please see the link below to Strategic exports: when to request an export licence
https://www.gov.uk/do-your-goods-need-an-export-licence
If you can provide some details of the goods I will look in to this in more detail to give you a definitive answer. If you want to contact me directly please feel free either on 01223 890767 or chris@accesstoexport.com.
Kind regards
Chris

Export licence are really for goods which may have an impact on UK security so weapons, chemicals etc are usually the types of goods were export restrictions may apply.
for more information on export licences, visit the BIS website: https://www.gov.uk/do-your-goods-need-an-export-licence. In any case, trade operations between 2 EU countries are not considered as export so export licenses would not apply. your paperwork should be exactly the same as if you were carrying this operation with a company based in London or Scotland....invoices and making sure the wood has the certifications etc if relevant in this occasion.
For more information, I suggest you contact your local Enterprise Europe Network office in the South West: http://www.enterpriseeuropesw.org.uk/swr/
I hope this helps.
best wishes
