Defra update – The Waste Industry in a No-Deal Scenario
This week, in a meeting organised by Defra, Government officials and representatives of the HMRC met with exporters of waste to further discuss the effects of Brexit, whatever the outcome come 29th.
During the meeting, it was once again confirmed that there would be no impact on existing or new TFS applications, whether the UK leave the EU with or without a deal. But there would still be possible delays with regards to truck deliveries and hold-ups at port during any transition period following the Brexit decision.
After a presentation from the HMRC, what was highlighted, was the effect a possible no-deal result could have on the waste industry, from both a customs and VAT perspective.
