What’s it going to cost?

What’s it going to cost?

 

A very good question indeed, and a question which is being raised more frequently as we approach the end of the year. Customs formalities are time-consuming, and differ depending on the complexity of each case. Furthermore, as you will have no doubt read, HMRC does not yet have everything completely in place in respect of some of its I.T. solutions. So it is a case of the blind leading the blind in some respects.

A straight forward export entry with one commodity without any extra documentation requirements will be a straight-forward basic charge. But a shipment with multiple commodities, depending on how many, will increase the time taken to complete and submit.

Changing direction, an import entry where there are duties and Import VAT to collect will incur time, ensuring that payments are made to HMRC in a timely manner so as not to impede delivery.

As you will have read in the Brexit Overview, we have invested in technology to reduce the impact of time, but until we ‘get stuck in’ in January, the true impact can only be estimated. As with all interactions with our customers, we tailor our services accordingly. Customs documentation charges shall be no different in this respect and we will be discussing with all customers to assess and agree appropriate agreements.
