Answer

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,
