Merchandise in Baggage in case of no-deal Brexit

Topic:-Merchandise in Baggage in case of no-deal Brexit

There are special customs requirements for commercial goods or samples which are imported or exported by passengers in their accompanied baggage (hand carried) or in a small motor vehicle (carrying less than 9 passengers and weight 3.5 tonnes or less). This is known as Merchandise In Baggage or MIB.

MIB goods include the following:

  • goods for commercial sale
  • spare parts
  • trade samples

whether or not they are:

  • permanently imported/exported
  • temporarily imported/exported
  • in transit
  • liable to customs charges

HMRC has announced how these rules will be applied in the EU if we have a no-deal Brexit. This will include the introduction of transitional simplified procedures for the import or export of goods valued at below £900 and weighing less than 1,000kg. This simplification will not apply to licensed, controlled, or excise goods. For all other goods a full declaration will be required before the goods enter or leave the UK.
