Getting started exporting Kitchens & Bedrooms to Pakistan

Question

I am currently a Kitchen & Bedroom Retailer in the UK. However i now wish to start exporting kitchens & Bedrooms to Pakistan.
I would like to know what do i need to do in order to achieve this and more specifically where do i start?

Is it better to purchase the items through my company in the uk or from my company already in Pakistan. Which way will be more beneficial to me?

Also will i be exempt from VAT?

Hope someone can help

Thanks in advance

Answer

Thanks Ian,

I understand now. Will I need an exporters licence or some sort of certificate to become an exporter.

Can you quote me typical prices to send the kitchen abroad. Please bear in mind that I will be sending Doors, Trims, Cornice, Plinths etc (no carcases) all flat packed, so all are different lengths and weight. A typical kitchen would weigh around 250kg.

How much by air and sea.

Regards

Zillay
