HMRC have issued the report Accounting Officer assessment summary: Single Trade Window Programme. The report summarises the main points from the HMRC Accounting Officer’s assessment of this major government programme.
A UK Single Trade Window (STW) is a single digital gateway at the UK border for traders to complete their import, export and transit obligations. The STW will save traders time and money by reducing the significant duplicative effort that is currently required to move goods across the UK border, and reduce barriers to entry to international trade by simplifying the customer experience. It will also enhance delivery of government services and compliance activity at the border, by improving the quality and accessibility of information that departments use to make decisions about where, and how, they intervene.
