TSP: Changes after Brexit

The article below outlines changes to using TSP after Brexit for controlled and standard imports.


Importing Standards Goods Using TSP


If you use Transitional Simplified Procedures, or TSP, currently to import standard goods you will need to record the following information before the goods enter the UK:

· the unique reference number for the consignment

· a description of the goods and the commodity code

· the quantity imported

· purchase and (if available) sales invoice numbers

· the customs value

· delivery details

· supplier emails

· serial numbers of any certificates or licenses


Then, the date and approximate time of when the goods entered the UK will need to be included in your records.


If you import EU goods under the Common Transit Convention you will need to record the information about the import before the goods leave the office of destination or authorised consignee. You will need to give the office of destination or authorised consignee your EORI number.


You do not need to record the time of the goods arriving in the UK, but you must update your records with the time that the goods are released into free circulation or from temporary storage. This is when duties and tax become due.


After you have released your goods into free circulation or out of temporary storage, you will need to submit a supplementary declaration.


You’ll need to submit a supplementary declaration after the goods enter the UK. In the event of no-deal Brexit, for goods imported before 30th April 2020, you will have until May 6th 2020 to submit the supplementary declaration.


Importing Controlled Goods Using TSP


If you use Transitional Simplified Procedures, or TSP, currently to import controlled goods you will need to do the following:

· submit a simplified frontier declaration before the goods are imported into the UK

· make sure that the controlled goods are accompanied by full supporting documentation, for example the appropriate licence

· update the declaration to ’arrived’ when the goods enter the UK (through a third party or software), before the end of the next working day

· If you’re importing standard goods as well as controlled goods, you can use the same (controlled goods) procedure for both.


If you’re importing goods from the EU under the Common Transit Convention, you do not have to submit the simplified frontier declaration before the goods enter the UK. But you must submit it before the goods leave the office of destination or authorised consignee.

You will need to give the office of destination or authorised consignee the master reference number of your simplified frontier declaration.


If you submit the simplified frontier declaration before the goods enter the UK, you’ll need to update the declaration to ‘arrived’ when they do. You must do this before the end of the following working day, or before they leave the office of destination or authorised consignee (whichever is sooner).


After you submit your simplified frontier declaration, you’ll need to submit a supplementary declaration


You’ll need to submit a supplementary declaration after the goods enter the UK. You must submit it by the fourth working day of the following month
