Re: Customs Form .. Transfer of Residence

If in doubt keep it simple, make sure your list of goods is as accurate as can be and dont sweat the small stuff.
Good luck!!

I cited "other" vs job/education details...

Re: Customs Form .. Transfer of Residence

Just a reminder to get the number BEFORE you ship.

Re: A question regarding shipping personal belongings back to the UK.

Re: A question regarding shipping personal belongings back to the UK.

The TOR number needs to go to the shipper prior to sailing.
Customs receiving, not Parcelforce, need the...

Re: Customs Form .. Transfer of Residence

Ditto.

Re: A question regarding shipping personal belongings back to the UK.

I suggest you follow the guidelines. The form is non-saveable online. This means you can fill it out, mess it up, change your mind, try different options etc until you get it right. Then, you print...

Re: A question regarding shipping personal belongings back to the UK.

I understand. Similar situation.
I used my family address and cited family reasons. My understanding is that if you use work or study you need back up documents.
