HMRC issues guidance on goods arriving in Britain without an import declaration (CIP 1)

Essential reading for anyone involved in the import of goods from the EU into the UK. 

Following guidance issued by HMRC on 6th July 2021, goods that have been imported into the UK since January 1st, 2021, for which no Full Frontier Declaration, Entry in Declarant’s Records (EIDR) or Simplified Declaration has been made, will have been imported into the UK non-compliantly.

HMRC has now issued guidance on how to proceed in these situations. The full text of the policy can be found here.
