6. Reclaim money on Import goods declared though an incorrect Customs regime

During a self-assessment with a manufacturing company, I noticed that they imported specific goods during a period. The period in question, they were authorised for a regime that they should have suspended the import duty and VAT.

I investigated and pulled out all the relevant paperwork and created a sheet with my workings. I had to ensure that the goods were used and manufactured into a finished item to qualify for the reclaim. Once I gathered all the export information, I created a worksheet for duty reclaim which was submitted to HMRC.

Once HMRC did their investigations, the company managed to claw back £865k in duties alone during this period.
