A.TR Movement Certificates
We are authorised by HM Revenue & Customs, to check and stamps A.TR Movement Certificates on their behalf.
A.TR's are certificates more commonly known as a Movement Certificates, which enable importers in Turkey to import goods under preference, which means that your customer pays a lower or nil rate of import duty on your goods.
A.TR's are similar to EUR1’s but are only for shipments to Turkey.
You must only complete an A.TR if you know that your goods satisfy the rules of origin as detailed in Customs Notice 812. You should have a copy of the Notices BEFORE completing the A.TR - have a look at our How to Guides for a link to Notice 812.
As with all the other export documents, you will need to include back up documents with your application, to assist us with the process.
As Turkey no longer accept the electronic stamp and signature, we advise that we hold some pre-signed A.TR forms at our offices for your A.TR applications. If we do not hold any pre-signed A.TR forms for you, we will send you out 10 to be signed and returned to us. If the forms are not returned to us then a full charge will be applicable.
What do I need to send to the Chamber with my A.TR Movement Certificate?
- Commercial Invoice
- Packing List (if the Gross Weight is not shown on your Invoice)
- Exporters Statement or a copy of the Customs Entry
The Exporters Statement must be printed on your letterhead, completed and signed. You can download a copy of the standard format from our How to Guides.
Please note that if you are raising the A.TR retrospectively (after the goods have been shipped), we will also need a copy of the shipping document as proof of export.
