It is possible to either fully or partially transfer rights and obligations onto another party who fulfils the obligations stipulated for that procedure. The relevant customs authority will decide whether a TORO may take place and the conditions under which it happens. The law delegates this authority to them. If a transfer is permitted then the customs authority will be required to confirm the conditions under which the transfer is permitted. Businesses who wish to TORO need to contact their supervising office for authorisation to undertake the transfer of rights and / or obligations.
HMRC revised their guidance on the use of TORO, due to discussions that took place in the special procedures expert group and revised guidance issued by the Commission. TORO doesn’t require the transferee to have a special procedure authorisation. There are two different procedures that can be used under TORO.
