The UK has proposed a Facilitated Customs Arrangement (FCA), which would see the UK mirroring the EU’s customs approach to ensure all goods destined for the EU have complied with EU customs processes - thus removing the need for customs processes between the UK and the EU.

As set out in the White Paper ‘The future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union’, the UK will seek to negotiate a reciprocal tariff revenue formula, which would account for goods destined for the UK entering via the EU and goods destined for the EU entering via the UK.
