    First Class Support for Palletised Freight Between GB and Europe

Brexit – GB to EU & EU to GB

Make sure that you are ready for Brexit, AND make sure that your customers are ready too

  • Register for VAT
  • Apply for and obtain an EORI number (anyone currently exporting/importing from beyond the EU will already have one)
  • Classify your goods – ensure you have the correct commodity codes:
    • Commodity codes, Duty If applicable and VAT rates can be checked at - gov.uk/trade-tariff
    • Correct classification is important to avoid any unexpected additional processes and could also identify goods that qualify under any free trade agreement
  • Goods that contain any products of animal or plant origin may require additional health certificates
  • Customs Clearance - It should be noted that there will be costs for the Export and Import customs clearance declarations. 
  • Appoint a customs intermediary or prepare to complete Export/Import declarations yourself. These arrangements must be in place for both the Export and Import clearances prior to despatch -

    Commercial Invoices will become a way of life for importers/exporters and contain the necessary information to process a declaration.

    This includes but is not limited to:

    • A clear and concise description of the goods that are being exported or imported and the relevant commodity (HS) code
    • EORI number of the Exporter/Importer
    • Full quantities and net/gross weights
    • Packing list
    • The country of origin of the goods
    • The full value and currency of the goods
    • The terms of shipment (INCOTERMS)
