In most cases a reference must be entered. This should either be as quoted on the:
- document/certificate/authorisation etc as indicated by HM Revenue and Customs in this document for definition
- relevant parts of the tariff, for example, Box 44 for licences and custom schemes
- custom procedure codes
- separate instructions, for example Customs Freight Simplified Procedures, or be a trader own reference
In respect of the ‘X’ series (of status codes – see document status codes for harmonised declarations for details) and its relationship with the reference: When document codes are used for declaring licences the document reference is used to identify the licence type.
For example when ‘XB’ is used the reference will be in the form of country code and licence type (for example GBCAP).
For other documents a document reference is not declared.
