EU imports will not be subject to extra checks

Most goods coming to the UK from the European Union will not be subject to extra checks after Brexit in an attempt to avoid long delays.

HMRC has announced transitional plans to allow EU goods to enter the UK as they do now even if there is a no-deal Brexit, Sky News reports.

The procedures will be in place for three to six months after Brexit before they are reviewed by HMRC.

The retail industry, which relies heavily on imported materials, has repeatedly called for clarity around Britain’s exit from the EU, including on tariffs and imports.
