SIR - Bradford's Chamber International export specialists provided a customs document, an ATA Carnet, to enable the temporary movement of British made electric vehicles to a trade exhibition in Ireland to avoid paying £19,000 in import duty (T&A, June 14).

In May my cycling club had to pay £300 for one of these bureaucratic monstrosities to get our bikes back into the UK after a tour in Austria, to avoid paying an estimated £2,000 import duty on our own property. The carnet cost us £300.

Before Brexit none of this was needed.
