About Low Value Consignment Relief on shipments from the Channel Islands, Ritchie tells us that:
I’ll tell you – although Gauke is not doing so – that the EU has said the UK has carte-blanche to act to stop this abuse altogether – so the only question now is when will they do so?
I\’m not quite sure how this can be true.
LVCR is a general rule that applies to all countries within the EU and all countries without it. It is possible for each individual country to vary the amount that is defined as \”low value\”, true, but even then only within certain prescribed limits.
I think I\’m right in saying (and am open to correction) that it cannot be less than € 10 and cannot be higher than €20.
The UK can cut the LVCR number to €10: but I\’m reasonably certain that it cannot abolish it.
