    No - This is a system that your courier/forwarder/post office will use for international shipments.

    Thanks for the reply @Import Expert

    ok so apart from using the CN22 form and CE 132 at the post office, is there anything else I need to do to cover myself?

    No - I don't believe so. :)

    I've never used a CE132. Our PO wouldn't be too happy at the extra work checking all the packages against it.

    All you need is the CN22 (CN23 for more valuable items).

    Looking at the Gov Dot UK website, it looks like the 132 maybe needed, dependent on the circumstances. Because the postman may not be happy is not an acceptable reason.

    If you are VAT registered remember that it's not the Post Office who are allowing you to zero rate the export, it's HMRC. HMRC require the appropriate proof of export.
