Another consultation triggered by Brexit changes was announced in the UK Budget on 11 March.  The consultation, which runs to 20 May, contains a number of policy options discussed in the document, including new opportunities as a result of EU exit. These include –

  • the amount of goods that passengers are allowed to bring in to the UK without paying duty and tax;
  • the sale of duty-free goods to passengers on departure from the UK;
  • the sale of tax-free goods to passengers on departure from the UK; and
  • the VAT Retail Export Scheme, which allows certain non-UK residents to obtain a VAT refund on high street goods they buy and take home with them in their luggage.

If you’d like to help me buy that (badly needed) new laptop or, even better, a new desktop to replace the one now 5,000 miles away –
