Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I order goods for a non embargoed destination and then ship to an embargoed destination

    The simple answer to this question is no.

    If we are advised at any point that goods (which are to be ordered, or have been ordered, and which are to be shipped to a non embargoed destination) will upon arrival be moved to an embargoed destination e.g. Republic of Congo to Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) then we must decline or cancel the order.

  • Do I need to Pay VAT

    If you are a UK customer

    Yes you need to pay VAT at the current rate on all purchases.

    If you are VAT registered you can claim this amount back


     

    If you are an EC Customer (Excluding the UK) and L.Jackson arranges the shipping

    Yes you will need to pay VAT unless you can provide us with your EC Registered VAT number


     

    If you are an EC Customer (Excluding the UK) and you arrange the shipping

    Yes you will need to pay VAT

    If you can provide us with your EC Registered VAT number and if your freight forwarder is able to give us written confirmation that they will provide us with a copy of the bills of lading then we will consider not charging VAT on the sale however, we must stress that this is done at our discretion and is dependent on our assessment of the shipping company as to the reliability of any statements to this effect


     

    If you are a Non EC Customer and L.Jackson arrange the shipping

    You will not be charged VAT


     

    If you are a Non EC Customer and you arrange the shipping

    No you will not need to pay VAT however,

    We need your freight forwarder to provide us with written confirmation that they will give us a copy of the bills of lading.  If we do not receive this confirmation, we will have to charge a 20% surcharge which is then refundable on receipt of a copy of the Bills of Lading

  • Export Licences - Why do I need an export licence

    Exports sales make up over 90-95% of our core business and as such we are well versed in the processes involved in the shipping of vehicles and equipment round the world.

     

    It is necessary for most exports to require an Export Licence as issued by BIS (Department for Business, Innovation & Skills).

     

    In particular it is necessary for customers purchasing ex. military vehicles to apply for an export licence being specific to the items being exported if the items are being exported from the U.K.

     

    EXPORT LICENCE....   What to do? (Don't worry it's not that difficult)


     

    Goods listed on our website as "NLR - No Licence Required are either civilian machines or have been deemed by BIS as not requiring a licence by virtue of having submitted either a rating or an application for a licence.

     

    Any surplus military vehicle which is considered to be "Specially Designed for Military Use" must be shipped on either an "Open General Export Licence (OGEL)" or a "Standard Individual Export Licence (SIEL)" depending on which country they are being sent to.

     

    Surplus Military Goods which were "Specially Designed for Military Use" can be shipped overseas on and OGEL with the exception of the following countries as per the latest OGEL with the following exceptions as per (Schedule 2)

     

    GOODS CONCERNED

     

     

    Goods falling within entry ML6 a. in Part 1 of Schedule 2 to the Order, except:

     

    a: Tanks and self-propelled guns;
    b: Armed, armoured vehicles and vehicles fitted with mounting for arms;
    c: Half-tracks;
    d: Gun-carriers, tractors and trailers specially designed for towing or transporting ammunition or weapons systems and related load handling equipment;
    e: Components specially designed or modified for military use for goods specified in heads a. to d. above.

     


     

    SCHEDULE 2.

     

    DESTINATION CONCERNED

     

     

    This export authorisation is valid for exports to the following destinations:

     

    All destinations other than in :

     

     

    Afghanistan, Angola, Armenia, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Burma (Myanmar), Burundi, China(PRC) (including Hong Kong and Macau Special Administrative Region), Croatia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Guinea, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Namibia, Nepal, Nigeria, North Korea, Occupied Palestinian Territories, Peru, Rwanda, Serbia and Montenegro, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Taiwan, Tanzania, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Yemen and Zimbabwe

    To assist customers we have produced an in-house guide which clearly identifies the rules in a simple format.

     

    Download a copy of our own in-house guide - July 2012 (Temporarily unavailable)

     

    Firstly when applying for an export licence, customers need to complete what is called an End User Agreement, a copy of which can be downloaded using the link above and which incorporates a checklist to aid in it's completion.

     

    Once that has been completed simply submit it back to our office if we are applying for the licence on your behalf or submit it to BIS if you are applying independently for the licence.

     

    The sequence of events is as follows:

     

    1: Enquiry is received in regards to Ex. Military Vehicles and quote given
    2: Customer satisfied with quote and confirms intention to place order
    3: Customer advised that Export Licence required and recommendation made to submit an application which is a cost and commitment free exercise i.e. it costs nothing to submit an application and an application does not mean an obligation to purchase from us.
    4: Customer completes End User letter and submits to our office who in turn submit with licence application to BIS.
    5: Customer places order
    6: Order complete for shipping at same time as Export License issued.

     

    Export licence applications generally take between 3-6 weeks to be processed and approved.

     

    IMPORTANT NOTICE:

     

    Some countries are under an EU embargo and as such will not be granted an export licence unless it can be proven that the vehicles are for Humanitarian Aid Support e.g. UN Aid Work.

     

    For more information on EU Embargoed Countries.....
    Go To The BIS Website

     

    From June 4th 2010 we can now ship EU / NATO force military vehicles as well as UK owned under an amended OGEL (Open general Export Licence - Surplus Military Vehicles).

     

    Download the latest copy

     

    Please note that this licence is only applicable to vehicles and equipment not listed in Schedule 1 of the licence for shipping to all countries other than those listed in schedule 2 of this licence or which are currently Embargo'd and for which a full export licence will be required.

  • Shipping - What are Incoterms

    The Incoterms rules or International Commercial terms are a series of pre-defined commercial terms published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) widely used in international commercial transactions.
     
     
     
    A series of three-letter trade terms related to common sales practices, the Incoterms rules are intended primarily to clearly communicate the tasks, costs and risks associated with the transportation and delivery of goods.
     
     
     
    The Incoterms rules are accepted by governments, legal authorities and practitioners worldwide for the interpretation of most commonly used terms in international trade.
     
     
     
    They are intended to reduce or remove altogether uncertainties arising from different interpretation of the rules in different countries.
     
     
     
    First published in 1936, the Incoterms rules have been periodically updated, with the eighth version—Incoterms 2010—having been published on January 1, 2011
