      Importing jeans from Singapore into the UK - Should I use an agent?

      Hi

      I am bringing in 10,000 pairs of jeans from Singapore at 6USD a pair. I have never imported before. The supplier is paying for carriage to UK port then the goods are my responsibility. Is it best to pick up goods myself and deliver to buyer or should I use an agent to sort out all the paperwork? In other words is it very complicated for a novice and how much would an agent roughly cost for an order like this. .

      there are many rules and regulations to which importers must adhere, so it is important to be aware of the issues that are involved to ensure compliance with the law.

      main areas to consider when importing for the first time. contractual issues, logistical issues, Incoterms, terms of payment, acquiring goods from within the European Community (EC), importing goods from outside the European Union (EU), import duty and tax and the Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certificate. You should work with an agent . Try this website Import Export Agents UK

      There are a lot of import and export regulations to follow both in singapore and in your country. I suggest you should ask the supplier to send the goods DOOR to DOOR instead of leave the troubles to you alone.
