Re: 2014 duty rates for penalties

You might as well make some submissions to the UT if you are given the chance otherwise your case is liable to go by default.

As mentioned above you could argue that you were not in physical control of the other person's goods and your goods were only forfeited because they were mixed with the other goods. However, you will need to explain to the tribnunal how your goods came to be found with those of this "other person" and your relationship to him or her.

You can also request the tribunal to consider whether the goods are liable to to duty anyway in view of Article 37 of EU directive 2008/118/EC.
