New UK customs requirements

As the UK is no longer part of the EU single market, pleasure craft owners now need to report in line with the ‘Rest of World’ requirements.

Anyone who owns, or is responsible for, a pleasure craft (such as a yacht) that sails to or from locations outside the UK and the Isle of Man is required to provide information for customs purposes about:

  • the vessel
  • the voyage
  • individuals on board
  • goods documentation

The UK government has updated the PDF version of the form and this can be downloaded and posted if required. However, the preference is for a new e-C1331 template to be used for reporting pleasure craft details to HMRC and Border Force.

The new e-C1331 is an excel template that will allow data to be submitted via email to the National Yachtline and the relevant regional Border Force command.

Boatbook has also been updated to allow the export of the required information into the new e-C1331 format.

For more information, log in to Boatbook and go to the Admin menu.
