An error in the UK’s post-Brexit IT border system disrupted companies bringing goods in from the European Union, raising costs, adding bureaucracy and snarling deliveries.
HMRC made a change to the government’s Customs Declaration Service -- which businesses use to generate forms for imports from the EU -- prevented some traders acquiring necessary paperwork on Tuesday.
T he change was introduced overnight on Tuesday. The problem: the new tariff code didn’t work. Trucks were held up at customs depots because their forms were being rejected. As one customs agent put it: The government had screwed up.
HMRC on Wednesday reversed the position, and now claims that the problem has been resolved.
Tax does have to be taxing.
