Chamber offering FREE export declarations

Given the terrible situation in Ukraine we at the Chamber are keen to do all we can to support the humanitarian aid effort.

The Government and International Aid Agencies, including the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) are urging people for financial contributions because supply chains are already tight, charities can buy in bulk and get the correct type of aid to people more quickly by buying in the countries where the refugees are located.

However, we appreciate that people are wanting to take ‘aid in kind’ (blankets, food, clothing..etc) to the Countries surrounding Ukraine. Therefore, the Chamber Network will be offering FREE export declarations for goods leaving the UK for humanitarian purposes. .

We are proudly flying the Ukrainian Flag in our Member’s Lounge and our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Ukraine.
