Current UK government policy and EU customs law allow importers and exporters to submit customs declarations for non-EU freight in a paper (manual) format. HMRC want to remove this route and introduce a wholly digital solution to:
- support the government’s digital strategy
- comply with future changes to EU law and
- strengthen controls to ensure correct tax is paid at the correct time
HMRC is asking for comments on the impact on businesses and the public of removing manual customs declarations for imported and exported goods. HMRC wants to hear from all those involved in the import and export of non-EU goods into and from the UK who currently submit manual customs declarations.
