De-Minimis: Low Value Consignment Relief reminder

A quick reminder on de minimis amounts for imports.  As announced in the Budget in March, the de minimis amount for imports is due to reduce from £18 to £15 from 1st November this year.  You can find full details of the changes in HMRC Information Paper CIP (11) 42 on the HMRC web site here.

The Treasury have not ruled out the possibility of a further reduction in a future Budget. We’re in discussions with the Treasury and HMRC to resist this.
