CFSP Customs Warehousing Webinar, 13th September, 11am-12noon

Since 1st January and the end of the EU Transition period, there has been a huge increase in demand for Customs Warehouses; facilities in which to store imported goods without payment of import duties.  Now that duty is payable on goods imported into the UK for distribution into Europe, where they will be taxed again, there is much interest in storing them tax free in the UK to avoid the double duty charge.

UKWA has arranged for HMRC to provide a walk through of the approval process in a webinar to be held on 13th September, where members can ask questions directly to HMRC about the requirements. How do you set up a Customs Warehouse?  What authorisations do you need?  Is it difficult to operate? How does the HMRC approve your business?

All the documents will be available after the event, as well as answers to questions raised in the form of an FAQ document
