Simplified arrangements for importing your goods post Brexit
HMRC have published guidelines on how to import goods after 29th March 2019 should the UK leave the EU without a deal. (see below)
The arrangements are called Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP’s) and are somewhat confusing if you are unfamiliar which many of the procedures already in place. Cutting through much of the below it appears HMRC intend to introduce something comparable to a “fast track” CFSP (transitional) authorisation.
The TSP’s certainly look to speed the customs clearance and movement of goods up at the port up, nevertheless it is not clear why HMRC are restricting TSP’s to Ro Ro ports alone? Perhaps HMRC will come under pressure to expand these arrangements to all ports/airports where goods arrive from the EU.
Furthermore, it is also not clear why it is implied TSP’s are only available to companies who currently do not import from outside the EU, does this not suggest an unfair advantage to companies who only receive goods from the EU?
