Get your postponed import VAT statement

If you account for your import VAT on your VAT Return, you’ll get a postponed import VAT statement online.

Unless you have delayed your customs declaration, each statement will show the total import VAT postponed for the previous month.

Your statements will usually be available to view by the 6th working day of the month.

Statements are provided in PDF format only.

You’ll only be able to access a statement for 6 months from the date it is published, so you must download and keep a copy of each statement in your records.

If you import goods and are a member of a VAT group you will have your own EORI and should access your own statement. You should send it to the representative group member who needs all the statements to complete the VAT return for the whole group.

Online services may be slow during busy times. Check if there are any problems with this service.
