  • Brexit and Rhenus

    Rhenus and Brexit:

    To ensure our customers are prepared for Brexit, we have prepared the following information. If you have any questions, please get in touch: brexit@uk.rhenus.com

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.

YOUR BREXIT CHECKLIST

We recommend you complete the following steps to best prepare your business for Brexit and the associated customs changes.

1. Nominate Rhenus as your customs broker

Appointing Rhenus as your customs broker and carrier will ensure the best logistics solution for your business post-Brexit. To empower Rhenus to act on your behalf as a Direct Representative please complete our empowerment document below.

4. Value, Origin, Gross and Nett Weight

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.

5. DEFERMENT ACCOUNT:

Depending on the product, imports to the United Kingdom are subject to VAT and customs duties. Having a deferment account for your business allows you to defer these payments, so they don't need to be paid at the time of import.

HOW HAS RHENUS PREPARED FOR BREXIT

  • Increased our warehousing and contract logistics capabilities.
  • Consolidated our customs brokerage capabilities to ensure our customs documentary requirements can be maintained across our network.
  • Upgraded our hubs for Temporary Storage capabilities (ETSF).
  • Our Authorised Consignor/Consignee status will enable us to process customs formalities at our sites.

WHY SHOULD I GIVE RHENUS DIRECT CUSTOMS AUTHORISATION

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.

INCOTERMS 2020

Post-Brexit, the importance of Incoterms will increase substantially; the Incoterms you agree with your supplier or customer will determine who will pay VAT & Duty when the goods clear customs.

Therefore, we advise our customers to familiarise themselves with the underlying regulations and their implications. Please click below for the full version.
