Importers - Urgent action required for any goods arriving in GB without an Import declaration
HMRC has published guidance on what to do when goods arrive in GB without an import declaration, please refer to below link.
Points to note:
Options available to the importer:
Option 1 is preferred, but where not possible (e.g. too late) Option 2 must be used.
For this customers must be onboarded for CFSP at additional costs, this is offered at Sussex ChamberCustoms.
In both cases, the imports will be non-compliant and HMRC may apply civil penalties.
Before applying civil penalties, HMRC will look at outstanding duty debts and repeated offences.
Acting quickly will save importers money!
