UK PENALTY FOR UNLICENSED BROKERING OF BODY ARMOUR

On 14th May, Notice to Exporters 2019/06 from the Department for International Trade detailed the compound penalty of £10,234 (a type of out of court settlement) issued by HMRC to an unnamed exporter in relation to unlicensed trading of body armour.  The goods were not exported from the UK, but the transaction involved a UK national, and such brokering requires a trading licence under the Export Control Act 2008.
