Phytosanitary checks and PEACH
Before plants can enter the UK, they have to be officially inspected for harmful organisms. Our team arranges this for you. On the day of departure we will also file the PEACH declaration on your behalf. This lets the authorities know about your incoming order and allows us to upload proof of phytosanitary checks. FlorAccess is a registered Agent with Defra, which allows us to file PEACH applications on your behalf.
Added VAT, clearance fees and phyto certification
Due to Brexit, additional paperwork is required. Per shipment, some fees will be included for export declarations, import declarations, and phytosanitary inspection and certification. These fees will typically amount to around €50.00 per shipment. Furthermore, the HMRC requires us to add 20% tax to all incoming shipments, this amount will be added to your invoice.
Lastly, the APHA charges an additional £ 24.00 for processing your PEACH application. They will invoice you directly.
