HMRC told the Treasury select committee last week that it estimates that the number of customs declarations at Dover and elsewhere could rise from 60m a year to 300m a year after the UK leaves the EU.
HMRC also admitted it is no longer sure that it can deliver on time a new customs declaration system for all lorries coming in and out of the ports.
Andrew Tyrie, the Treasury select committee chairman, quoted by the Guardian noted that the delivery of CDS was “in doubt”, with HMRC’s internal project management rating placing it in a “major risk” category. He warned that the “consequences of this project failing, or even being delayed, could be serious” and “much trade could be lost”.
Ah well, I dare say MTD will go smoothly!
Tax does have to be taxing.
