Use this spreadsheet for document, certificate and authorisation codes for harmonised declarations and details to be declared.
This file is in an OpenDocument format
This file may not be suitable for users of assistive technology. Request an accessible format.
A reference must be entered for harmonised declarations. This should be one of the following:
- as quoted on the document, certificate, authorisation, or licence reference HM Revenue and Customs gave to you
- as listed in the document certificate and authorisation codes for harmonised declarations
- obtained from the relevant parts of the tariff, for example, box 44 for licences and custom schemes
- the custom procedure codes
- separate instructions, for example, Customs Freight Simplified Procedures
- a trader’s own reference
For the ‘X’ series of status codes and their relationship with the reference:
When document status 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 a country code and licence type (such as, GBCAP). For other documents, a document reference isn’t declared.
