HMRC have recently confirmed to the trade that they are prepared to extend the transition to the change in approach on indirect representation for some customs authorisation holders, which they published in CIP10 (2018).

“We (HMRC) believe that the position set out in CIP 10 (2018) is the correct interpretation of UCC legislation and ask traders to adjust their processes as soon as they are able, however, we recognise the multiple challenges that are effecting businesses involved with international trade at the moment and are prepared to accept that current practices can continue until 1st October. We will issue a further Customs Information Paper setting out this position in due course.”

Please note that this position may change subject to Brexit agreements.

You can find HMRC’s CIP10 guidance here.
