Brexit: UK to reduce EU border checks

Tags: , ,


The government of the UK has indicated that HMRC will apply much less rigorous EU border checks on imports than initially planned, once the Brexit transition period finishes at the end of 2020.

The Financial Times is reporting that Ministers have given up plans to introduce full checks because of representations from businesses.

The government indicates it would take a “pragmatic and flexible approach” because of Covid-19.

It was planned to introduce import controls on EU goods in January, but government sources said ministers recognised the impact the virus was having on businesses, and so pragmatism and flexibility on imports was sensible – “to help business adjust to the changes” that were now imminent.
