Whilst it is now over a year since the UK left the EU Customs Union, the fall out is still being felt and we continue to experience a high volume of enquiries. As a result we are operating on a 5 working day response time. Thank you for your patience.

UK Subsidiary – Restructuring of Supplier Contracts

Supply Chain Restructure Saves £400K PA

A UK subsidiary of a Far East company, 'C' purchases all stock etc. from its parent company but this includes many services which if supplied separately would not attract duty, an example being 'buying' commission.

We are working with the company to restructure its supplier chain and estimate actual duty savings of £400K per annum (based on 12.2% duty being removed from non-dutiable items) once this has been done.
