    Sorry if this has been asked before. I have purchased a rifle from a dealer in the UK. In section 3.3 - the source of Firearm I have put the dealer's name. In the next box, it's asking for the dealer's pulse No. Do I leave this blank or can I put the company's registered Number down instead. Any suggestions are much appreciated. Cheers

    Write "out of jurisdiction" in that section. I asked the same question to my local FO when importing from Germany and that's what he told me to write. When I handed in the form I did include a sheet with the dealers full address, email, phone number, etc. just in case. Never had any trouble.

    Dont want to take this off topic, just wondering as mainland Britain is outside the EU now, have you factored in Taxes and custom duty, has the seller mentioned anything about exporting difficulties in sending to Rep of Ireland.

    Don't put down the registered number(that space is only for PULSE IDs), simply put N/A or similar, and explain on a separate sheet that the dealer is in the UK, and add the name, address, contact info to that separate sheet.

    Your FO may ask for a copy of the UK dealers firearms dealer documentation(cannot recall the right name), but usually not.

    If they do then just ask the UK dealer for a scan of their dealers certificate and forward that to the FO.

    Never forget, the end goal is zero firearms of any type.

    As far as I know, the dealer has an arrangement with another dealer in the North and is sending it there so honestly dont know if I will need to pay any taxes
