Brexit

Brexit Update – July 2020

“We have informed the EU today that we will not extend the Transition Period.
The moment for extension has now passed……there is still work to be done to
ensure we are ready to seize the opportunities of being fully independent….”

Michael Gove – Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster – June 2020

 

Irrespective of “Deal” or “No Deal” Brexit will generate an additional 200+ million customs declarations per annum. Expertise is in short supply and customs agency capacity is not ready for a five-fold increase in the volume of transactions.

We identified this issue early in the process and took immediate steps to turn a potential threat in to an opportunity to excel. We have partnered with a specialist 24 hour customs agency set up purely for the additional volume generated by Brexit.

Our customs department will manage the day-to-day needs of our cross border operations in the UK, Ireland and throughout mainland Europe. 

Additional data will be required for consignments destined for the Republic of Ireland prior to the shipment being collected. The key information required is listed below, however, we can streamline this process dramatically by customers supplying us with a number of these data fields now. We have identified this as “Master Data” for which customers will have received an email giving instructions as to how to supply this data.

We cannot stress enough how critical this stage of the preparations is in order to ensure a seamless transition on the 1st January 2021

  1. CONSIGNOR’S EORI Number
  2. CONSIGNEE’S EORI Number
  3. SHIPMENT TERMS (INCO TERMS)
  4. COMMODITY CODE
  5. DESCRIPTION OF PRODUCT
  6. COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
  7. NO OF ITEMS
  8. VALUE
  9. CURRENCY
  10. NETT WEIGHT
  11. GROSS WEIGHT

 

Charges will be applied for Custom Clearance per Consignment, which have yet to be finalised.
