Simplified Customs Transit Arrangements
HMRC have published a Tax and Information Notes (TIIN) and legislation for new simplified rules for customs transit arrangements and declarations of imported goods under a free zone on the 9th of June. The policy paper relates to simplified rules for customs transit arrangements and declarations of imported goods under a free zone.
The policy measure establishes new simplified arrangements under which certain persons approved by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to receive goods at the end of a cross-border customs transit movement (authorised consignees) can temporarily store those goods at their approved premises for a limited period before the goods are placed under another customs procedure or exported.
Furthermore, the measure also modifies the rules concerning the use of simplified customs declaration arrangements, by enabling these simplified arrangements to be used by authorised persons declaring imported goods to be kept in a customs free zone also known as a Freeport customs site.
