    Can anyone point me in the right direction on this? I was looking to dropship to the UK, but I can't find any info on customs. Thanks.

    Where are you drop shipping from? Custom's over here are extra tight on shipments/parcels from China.

    Thanks. I think I set the record straight. Now as far as paying the tariffs, how would I do that? Would I file a SAD form every time, or just set up an account to file?

    Ive only used SAD forms on intra EU imports. ie if I imported from outside the EU held the goods in the UK and then moved them to their final point of sale within the EU. And even then I only used SAD forms to prove I had paid VAT at UK point of entry and was not due to pay it twice in the EU.

    If you are dropshipping Im not sure how this is relevent ? been a while since I moved stuff around the EU though.
