“But the plans were on display…”
“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”
“That’s the display department.”
“With a flashlight.”
“Ah, well, the lights had probably gone.”
“So had the stairs.”
“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.”
So, the Control of Raw Tobacco Scheme has finally surfaced. It's been delayed and delayed because in reality I don't think they have a clue as to what they are doing. Well, not when it comes to having to put a scheme into place ... which they reluctantly have to do.
l say reluctantly because l don't think they want any company to register. lf you are a company trying to register you'll have to jump through so many hoops it really is "Beware of the Leopard" as above (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy). Even if you do all that, it still is down to HMRC as to 'if they like you' l kid you not ... have a read of their Notice.
This HMRC Notice was published on 14th Dec 2016 (was initially to be end of Nov 2016) but even then it was delayed till 3pm ... because they were still writing it!!! Unbelievable eh?
It may be a little easier for private individuals who wish to purchase leaf. We are going to look at it and produce a guide for you very shortly. We promise to keep you away from any Leopards! :)
