Seven Seas Worldwide is advocating for the use of ToR1 forms by those relocating to the UK, to bypass customs tax. The ToR1 form is invaluable for individuals planning a permanent move to the UK, allowing them to import a variety of personal items tax-free, including household appliances, pets, and cars.
With an impressive track record of over 25 years in facilitating relocations to the UK, Seven Seas Worldwide is knowledgeable about all aspects of the ToR1 form, from the application process to the time it takes for approval.
The ToR1 form, necessary for importing personal belongings to the UK, can be completed online on the HMRC website, where applicants can upload all required information and documents.
To qualify for a ToR1, applicants must be moving to the UK permanently, have owned their belongings for over six months, and complete the import within one year of moving.
The timeframe for processing a ToR1 varies between two to six weeks, largely depending on the application’s accuracy. Applying early and ensuring all information is correct can speed up the process.
Choosing a reliable moving company for a UK move is crucial. It’s advisable to opt for companies with a long history in the field, multilingual support, and additional services such as online tracking and customs clearance.
John Henderson, Managing Director at Seven Seas Worldwide, highlights the importance of the ToR1 process: “I strongly encourage our customers to leverage the ToR1 process for tax relief on personal effects when shipping to the UK. It’s not just a financial advantage; it’s a seamless way to ensure a smoother transition, making your move a truly stress-free experience.”
