It's all hypothetical but say I bought it from my cousin for £500 18 years ago that's not fraud. I'm not saying it right or wrong I'm just wondering how revenue would deal with such cases
Anybody over a certain age around here knows full well how customs operate , they shoot first and ask questions later ,so unless you paperwork is bulletproof, they’ll screw you . They’ll also sometimes screw you even if your paperwork is bulletproof, just because they can . You just don’t want to get involved with this agency. They’re very highly paid and backed by the state to Raise revenue even if they’re wrong .
It’s really only Eu law has kept them in check and they often had to be brought to European court to comply with easing of. Customs rates and tariffs , so when they are off the leash , be careful.
