Chamber Customs Declarations

As we exit the EU, the UK Government has estimated we could see significant growth in the volume of customs declarations companies and HRMC will have to deal with (from 70million to potentially 300m).   In order to prepare for such jump in demand,  the UK Government approach the British Chambers of Commerce and other partners to address the issues of potential shortage of customs agents supporting companies completing their declarations.
