The UK will leave the EU on 31.12.2020, having informed the EU that it does not intend to extend the transitional period. This means from 01.01.2021, all freight movements between the UK & the EU will be subject to customs procedures.
We have taken extensive steps to minimise any impacts caused by Brexit. Our priority is to maintain a seamless service to our customers, irrespective of the challenges ahead.
We recommend you complete the following steps to best prepare your business for Brexit and the associated customs changes.
The importer needs to know the value of goods for trade stats and calculation of VAT/Duty. Both Importers & Exporters will need to know the origin of goods and the goods gross and nett weights, which form part of the customs declaration.
By providing Rhenus with direct customs clearance authorisation you are ensuring Rhenus can complete all Import and/or Export declarations on your behalf. This will be a necessary requirement for ALL UK Import and/or Export shipments.
Post-Brexit, the relevancy of Incoterms will increase substantially, therefore we advise all our customers to familiarise themselves with the underlying regulations and agree to them.
We have dedicated teams in Ireland, focusing on preparing for Brexit together with our customers. If you would like to know more about Brexit and what Rhenus is doing, please get in touch: email@example.com
