TRADE UPDATE FROM HM REVENUE AND CUSTOMS (HMRC)

The Chamber is aware of a September update published by HMRC.

Trader Emails are planned for the 30th September, to 155,000 traders covering Import and Export Declarations. Trader Letters are also planned for issue during w/c 27 September to approximately 27,000 experienced GB traders who have not submitted import declarations since 1 January 2021, to remind them of the new customs requirements they must meet and let them know where they can get help.

In this letter HMRC will Remind traders they must declare all goods they import into GB from the EU and what process they must follow to delay declarations for non-controlled goods, directing them to clear guidance on GOV.UK.

The letter will also direct traders to the www.GOV.UK guidance on how to make an entry in their records and submit their supplementary declaration within 175 days of import, if they choose to delay their declarations. HMRC want to help traders feel supported through the new processes and signpost them to where they can get help.

David Cowan, International Declaration Manager said; "Norfolk ChamberCustoms should be your first port of call, where expert advice and service is available today. We can help you get your declarations right, first time, and support you through what can seem challenging at the start. Traders can contact me directly on 01603 729 707"
