Goods and Vehicles Seized by UKBA

Most businesses, large and small and whatever their sector, are directly or indirectly reliant on imports and exports. Supply chains can be disrupted and commercial contracts placed at risk if goods or vehicles are seized by the UK Border Authority (UKBA) or HMRC.

If goods or vehicles are seized, urgent and expert legal advice is needed to understand your rights and the relevant law and regulations and to minimise the impact of the seizure on your company operations and business reputation.
