  • Archiving your trade documents

    Guidance on archiving documents from HMRC is great, however I wonder if you could expand on if we need to physically keep original documents for example, FORM A for preference. Our suppliers send the originals to our broker, and I wonder if it is necessary and if we can just keep digital copies? Any comments from HMRC or fellow trade compliance forum members gratefully received.
  • Importer of Record

    Suppliers shipping DDP Incoterms to the UK, however declarants [couriers mainly] name the consignee as Importer of Record not the supplier. I am interested to hear from fellow forum members or HMRC how from a practical point of view you can explain to a supplier from outside of the UK who still cannot get their heads around that the UK no longer is in the EU and is classed as 3rd country of this when shipping on Delivered Duty Paid. Also, how from a practical point of view you can have the import entry changed to the supplier if as consignee incorrectly named as Importer of record under DDP.
