HMRC Inland Pre Clearance – Update 23/01/2019
HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is moving its inland pre-clearance operations to new purpose-equipped sites at Hayes and Milton Keynes as the contracts on current sites come to an end.
Some logistical challenges were experienced around the Christmas period as preparation was underway to transition from the old sites to the new warehouse facilities. Unfortunately this has resulted in a backlog of goods for inspection.
Contingency measures have been put in place, to help manage these delays. The situation is also being monitored on a daily basis and consideration given to further ways to smooth the transition process.
HMRC are confident that they now have a strategy in place that will allow them to work through those items that have been delayed.
