Notice 143 has been updated to reflect changes to Low Value Consignment Relief (LVCR) on goods sent to the UK from the Channel Islands as announced in the Budget 2012, and clarifies the role performed by the Border Force in the Customs clearance of postal imports.

Notice 143 explains what happens when you import or export goods by post through Royal Mail or Parcelforce Worldwide. It also applies to gifts received through the post. The arrangements set out in this notice however do not apply when a full declaration on a SAD (form C88) is required.
