Brexit: UK ports to wave through EU goods without checks after no-deal exit, HMRC says | The Independent

UK ports will wave through goods from the EU without checks if there is a no-deal Brexit to avoid huge traffic jams, it has been announced.

Tax chiefs have told 145,000 businesses they will be allowed to make declarations later – and postpone paying any import duties – to calm fears of border chaos.

The “temporary period” will last for up to one year at 20 of the busiest ports, says a letter from HM Revenue and Customs.
