To date HMRC have signed leases to secure four sites that were developed as temporary customs facilities ahead of the UK’s exit from the EU on 31 January 2020. Where necessary, contracts will be reviewed to extend them beyond 1 January 2021. Contracts are also in place for the development and running of these sites.

It is intended to conduct physical inspections at most of these locations after the end of the Transition Period.
