HMRC (GAR) Customs Notification period : closing 15 May 2015


HMRC and the Home Office have recently issued a new draft Commissioners Direction (CD) that significantly changes procedures for the General Aviation Report (GAR) when entering the UK by air. Although there were stakeholder discussions with the Home Office in 2013 after the last CD change, we had no prior warning of this change and have serious concerns about the impact on members who fly overseas. The LAA and partner aviation associations in the GA Alliance hope to present a united front, working together with AOPA, to propose a more appropriate notification period.

For a detailed analysis of the impact of the new proposals by John Murray, please visit http://www.goav8.net/ and click on 'GAR Consultation'. Please also fill in the questionnaire which seeks your views - ASAP please, time is short.  Your response will be collated with other to inform our arguments.
