“NO DEAL” BREXIT – UPDATE
 
Please find enclosed our latest updated as at 15 August 2019:
 
IMPORTS FROM THE EU TO THE UK
 
The exporter of the goods or their appointed agent in the EU must provide the Export Accompanying Document (EAD) indicating that the goods will leave the EU through a specified Port and enter the UK.  This document needs to be authenticated by the relevant EU Customs authority, ideally in paper form, together with the relevant barcode.  If you require assistance in producing this documentation we are able to assist.
 
The UK importer must have previously registered for Transitional Simplified Procedure (TSP).  In addition the UK importer must have registered for an Economic Operators Registration and Identification number (EORI) and in addition must have a current UK VAT number.

With these procedures having been completed, the cargo can then move freely from the EU to the UK. 
 
The UK Customs will then allow a period of six months as from 1 November 2019 for the importer to complete their import Customs declaration.
 
From 1 May 2020 import clearance declarations must be completed on a monthly basis for cargo to be cleared successfully.
 
 
UK EXPORTS TO THE EU
 
An Export Accompanying Document (EAD) needs to be produced either by the exporter or by his agent and authenticated by Customs.   Once the Exporter receives Permission to Progress (P2P) from Customs the goods can leave the exporter’s premises.
 
We would expect the exporter to transmit the relevant documents to their authorised agent to complete a transit form (T-form). 
 
The T-form will then be presented to Customs by the driver at an authorised location to enable the form to be authenticated whereupon the vehicle is ready for transiting to its destination.
 
If you require assistance in producing the documentation we are able to assist.
