UKFT Brexit Guide to Returned Goods Relief
UKFT has published a new guide to the Returned Goods Relief to help UK fashion and textile companies when dealing with returns from EU customers as part of our Brexit Guidance.
One of the complications thrown up by the UK-EU Trade Continuity Agreement is the additional cost and paperwork of dealing with returns from EU customers. All imports into the UK are subject to import VAT and potentially tariffs when they enter the UK. This also applies to returns from all overseas customers, both B2C and B2B. However, applying for Returned Goods Relief (RGR) from HMRC means you can avoid paying import VAT and potential tariffs.
The guide covers:
- Who can claim Returned Goods Relief
- How to claim Returned Goods Relief
- When to claim Returned Goods Relief
- How to claim RGR for goods imported by post and for goods in the EU on 31 December 2020
UKFT Brexit Guidance for the UK fashion and textile industry
UKFT has been working very closely with the UK government during all the negotiations with the EU. We know and understand how the UK-EU TCA will impact on UK fashion and textile businesses and we can help and advise companies on how to develop new strategies to ensure they can continue to trade successfully with the EU and the rest of the world.
