The government speaks regularly to a range of stakeholders on customs and related matters. Since the referendum, ministers and officials have met with over 300 businesses and other organisations involved in international trade throughout the UK to discuss customs VAT and excise.

Businesses and representative bodies have an important role to play in the policy making process and the government will continue its engagement.
