The number of customs declarations is likely to increase significantly when the UK finally leaves the EU.
It is important to note that declarations will be required whether a deal is reached or not.
This is one of the myths of the current UK/EU trade negotiation. Whatever the outcome, it’s expected that it will be necessary to submit import and export declarations. This will be the case even if a tariff-free deal is agreed – that outcome would only result in import duties not applying to relevant goods.
It is hoped that the scheme will help businesses to improve their own understanding of customs formalities.
