The Government has released a paper setting out proposals for a future customs relationship with the EU in the first of a series of papers on the UK’s future partnership with the EU. The paper focuses on two broad approaches:
- A highly streamlined customs arrangement between the UK and the EU, with customs requirements that are as frictionless as possible.
- A new customs partnership with the EU by aligning the UK approach to the customs border in a way that removes the need for a UK-EU customs border.
These are very much proposals, the full paper can be found at Future_customs_arrangements_-_a_future_partnership_paper
