GTS 10.1 - Items arriving into IP stock
Hope someone can help us.
We have been told by our business allegedly via the authorities that instead of items arriving into the Customs Warehouse Duty Unpaid we have to declare all unpaid items into IP and then we can move the items to the Customs Warehouse as 50% of arrivals will not be in work. This is under the guise of the UCC changes, has anyone heard of this?
Once we have receipted & declared the item to IP, we have IP stock showing in GTS & stock showing in ERP. Outside of throwing our stock comparison reporting out of line, at worst we would need to move some stock back to the warehouse. As stated previously, if it is not in work it remains our understanding that the item is not permitted to remain in IP.
So far investigated internal document to create warehouse stock which is not permitted as the beginning of an item’s Customs Warehouse life needs to be a fully completed declaration.
Also looked at replicating the declaration into IP as a declaration into the warehouse, this would appear to be quite risky/unsustainable given the amount of variable information on an arrival declaration.
We do have an ability to remove the IP stock to avoid duplication of duty risk if we can create the Customs Warehouse stock. So does anyone have any pointers/advice on generating Customs Warehouse Duty Unpaid stock with a fully complete declaration copying the important information from a declaration into IP?
