HMRC announced on 22 March 2019 further details of new customs requirements, should the UK leave the EU without a deal.
- An extension of the date when the first supplementary customs declarations must be submitted, and any import duties must be paid, to 4 October 2019, with subsequent declarations submitted monthly.
- Making TSP available for any port or airport where goods are being brought in from the EU. HMRC will continue to work with stakeholders on TSP implementation, recognising that circumstances will be different from port to port.
- Giving importing businesses until 30 September 2019 to provide a guarantee that is required to cover any customs duties that they wish to defer. This will apply for all importers, not just those who have registered for TSP.
The ForwardOffice software platform used by RW Freight Services complies with the requirements for HMRC Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP).
During the course of March successful testing was undertaken in the CHIEF HMUT environment to prove this.
