The NI command paper that was published on 21 July 2021 set out the UK’s approach on the Northern Ireland Protocol. HMRC has updated stakeholders to confirm what this means for traders and businesses.

For now, you should continue to carry on with existing processes for moving goods between GB and NI, and should assume this will continue to be the situation, until told otherwise. This means that businesses must continue to make declarations, where required, for goods moving between GB and NI; including making supplementary declarations for goods that have already moved. The TSS remains available to support businesses to make declarations and we will continue to roll new out functionality to support businesses with a range of customs processes and declaration requirements.

We will continue to keep you updated with the latest information from the government as it provides further updates for traders and businesses.
