There is a sophisticated scam (phishing) email circulating from a sender claiming to be FIATA from the PayPal payment system (email address email@example.com), asking for payment to be made to FIATA for membership fees.
The British International Freight Association (BIFA) has launched a programme called ‘Freight Development Pathway’ in partnership with Manpower, part of ManpowerGroup, one of the world’s leading workforce solutions companies.
BIFA receives regular enquiries regarding valuation and in particular the different types of delivery costs, and which ones you must include or exclude in the customs value if you’re an importer or clearing agent.
BIFA has been advised by HMRC that guidance issued relating to Claiming preferential rates of duty between the UK and EU is incorrect and must not be followed. HMRC is working to retract the information as a matter of priority.
