Updated HMRC guidance on accessing postponed import VAT statement without penalty for errors.

  • HMRC has updated their guidance on getting a postponed import VAT accounting (PVA) statement
  • Importers facing problems accessing monthly PVA statements will not be penalized if they follow guidance
  • PVA statements will now be available by the tenth working day of the month
  • Importers can estimate import VAT figures if unable to access PVA statements
  • Estimates should be as accurate as possible based on costs paid for goods, packaging, transport, and insurance
  • Necessary adjustments must be made in the next VAT return when the relevant PVA statement becomes available
