“The referendum promised that the UK would regain sovereignty but continue to trade with the EU much as before — no duties and frictionless trade across borders. The consequential Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) was received with much rejoicing. Unfortunately, ‘cooperation’ has not extended to minimising regulation and controls at the EU/UK borders nor to maintaining the EU practice of each country retaining the VAT it collects rather than leaving collection to the country of the ultimate buyer. The former system is much simpler and the swings pretty much offset the roundabouts.” (01/04/22)
