No more deferral of import declarations in the UK – Since the 1st of January 2022, the British importer (or their representative) must immediately submit an import declaration (temporary storage) upon arrival of the cargo in the UK; in the case of pre-lodgement, this must have already been submitted. Only then is the cargo allowed to proceed. With that, the British government is ending the transitional arrangement for a six-month postponement of import declarations.

Do this right away

Seek coordination with your chain partners in the UK
The new working method, which has been effective from the 1st of January 2022, makes it even more important that import declarations on the British side are always completed correctly and on time. Be sure to properly coordinate this with your British counterparts.
