Brexit and Customs Clearance – What can I do now?

Hello, its David here,

Please click here to read the guidance from the UK government regarding the transitional period.

Preparing your business

From 1 January 2021, you will need to make customs declarations to move goods into and out of the EU. You should:

  • get an EORI number (if you do not already have one)
  • decide how you want to make customs declarations and whether you need to appoint someone to deal with customs for you.
  • Another clear pointer from the UK government that you need to think about appointing a Customs specialist to complete your post 1.1.21 Customs declarations for you.

We urge you to not to leave this until it is too late.  There is insufficient capacity in the field of customs clearance.  It is in your interest to act now.
