Transitional Simplified Procedures - TSP
HMRC has today set out an extension of Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP) which includes:
- an extension of the date when the first supplementary customs declarations must be submitted, and any import duties must be paid, to 4 October 2019, with subsequent declarations submitted monthly.
- making TSP available for any port or airport where goods are being brought in from the EU. HMRC will continue to work with stakeholders on TSP implementation, recognising that circumstances will be different from port to port.
- giving importing businesses until 30 September 2019 to provide a guarantee that is required to cover any customs duties that they wish to defer. This will apply for all importers, not just those who have registered for TSP.
