Transitional Simplified Procedures Revisited

Hello it’s David with apologies for going over old ground. We have previously blogged about Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP,) but I feel it’s worth revisiting as TSP appears to have some pretty glaring holes.  I wonder if customs are aware and just don’t care?  It’ll all sort itself out – or HMR&C will get lots more juicy fines… TSP is …

Brexit, the power of a word!

When initially coined, the word ‘Brexit’ made the whole experience sound like a bit of a jaunt supporters and demonstrators could get behind to oppose or promote their view with chants such as; ‘Brexit means Brexit’ ‘No to Brexit’ ‘Hard, Brexit’ ‘Soft Brexit’ Now, however, the word has started to become a boulder around all of our necks, every outlet …

Wow, what a week in politics!

I know I have said it previously, but I think this week warrants it again; “Wow what a week in politics.”  Theresa May had all her options taken away from her last week by MPs; Parliament refused to accept her deal – defeated by 149 Parliament, voted to include a clause that stopped her dropping out of the EU with …

Finally, some news from the UK government regarding how it is intended to maintain a soft Irish land border after Brexit.  Please see: avoiding-a-hard-border-in-northern-ireland-in-a-no-deal To the best of our understanding, only ‘Excise, Controlled and Licensed’ goods will require declaration to UK authorities at the border.  We understand no customs duty …

In control of our own destiny

Some time has passed since my last blog. I was away on holiday, although there appears to be little time for pausing for followers of the Brexit debate.  I came back from a week of roaming the untamed moors of North Yorkshire only to discover that a whole new ‘sort of political party’ had appeared in the middle ground of …

EORI registration

Hello, David here beating the EORI drum yet again: In a post Brexit world you will not be able to conduct trade with the EU or the Rest of the World if you do not have an EORI registration.  Customs are putting this message out almost daily now.  In case you have missed it or are yet to act, click …
