These are required to move goods across Europe in addition to the Export Documents. Examples of transit documents are TFORMS, Pre-lodge barcodes and GMRs.

  • TFORMs are a guarantee on the VAT that will be paid at the customs clearance point in the receiving country.
  • Pre-lodge barcodes are for goods that will be cleared directly at a port, such as Calais. These can be used instead of TFORMs if available.
  • A Goods Movement Reference number is required for both imports and exports through non inventory linked UK ports.
