HMRC Issues Updated Haulier Comms

On the 1st January 2022 the UK introduced additional controls relating to trade to/from the EU; the most significant change being the implementation of GVMS.

Members have forwarded various enquiries to the BIFA Secretariat regarding GVMS, the operation of which initially has had certain problems.

Since its implementation, BIFA has written twice to HMRC regarding problems that Members have encountered with the system.The new procedures are complex and are dependent on all parties performing their task correctly, sending and monitoring messages and involving some operators such as hauliers in Customs activities for the first time in decades. Complexity and unfamiliarity have contributed to some of the issues encountered.

HMRC recently sent an email to some 13,000 EU based hauliers with advice on how to resolve common errors when using GVMS.

Copies of the email content are available HERE on our EU Exit Hub and in the following languages:

  • Bulgarian
  • Czech
  • Dutch
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Hungarian
  • Lithuanian
  • Portuguese
  • Polish
  • Romanian
  • Spanish

We ask that our Members share these communications with their hauliers as appropriate.
