Importers may be surprised to know that very few fiscal checks are undertaken by Customs at the point of import. Instead HMRC rely on post-importation audits to check the accuracy of customs declarations.
Importers who have recently been audited by HMRC will know that it can be both a time consuming and stressful process. Those who subsequently received a retrospective demand for underpaid duty will know that it can also be very costly!
Hexagon has provided support and advice to help guide many importers through Customs audits, and we recognise this as one of the services most valued by our clients.
If your business has been selected for audit and you need support - or simply advice on how best to prepare - please contact us via phone or email.
