Transitional Simplified Procedures will make importing after Brexit on 31 October much simpler, particularly for businesses that would be completing customs processes for the first time.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has automatically registered 95,000 businesses for its simplified import procedures allowing most traders up to 6 months to pay import duties and submit customs declarations, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal on 31 October 2019.
