Customs Process Streamlined - Details and Timelines

20 Mar 2023

A package of measures to streamline and simplify customs processes for businesses has been announced by the government.

The changes, announced at the Spring Budget, reflect views from traders and the border industry gathered through the 2022 Call for Evidence on long term customs policy, and go further in proposing new areas for reforming the customs system.

The proposals include giving traders more time to submit declarations after crossing the border, streamlining customs and excise authorisations, and consulting on voluntary standards for the customs intermediary sector.
