  • Update 19th June 2020

The British Government have now confirmed in a statement to the EU on the 12th June 2020 that Brexit will be taking place as previously planned at the beginning of January 2021, there will now be no extension to the “transition period”.

 

Whilst this is the start date for customs formalities for goods imported from the EU to the UK and vice versa, it will not be the start date for full border controls. This will be phased in over 3 periods, culminating in 1st July 2021.

 

As reported in the Lloyd Loading List the 3 phases will be as follows;

 

From January 2021, traders importing standard goods will need to prepare for basic customs requirements and will have up to six months to submit customs declarations to UK customs agency HMRC.

“While tariffs will need to be paid on all imports from Day One, payments can be deferred until the customs declaration has been made, giving traders time to adjust to the new requirements,” the UK government said. Safety and Security declarations will not be required for six months for all goods. Traders will, however, need to consider some other processes, such as how they will account for import VAT.

 

From April 2021, all products of animal origin (POAO) – for example meat, pet food, honey, milk or egg products – and all regulated plants and plant products will also require pre-notification and the relevant health documentation.

 

And from July 2021, traders moving all goods will have to make full declarations and pay tariffs at the point of importation. Full Safety and Security declarations will be introduced, while for Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) commodities, there will be an increase in physical checks and the taking of samples: checks for animals, plants and their products will now take place at GB Border Control Posts

 

 

If you wish to discuss your requirements in the lead up to the end of December 2020, please do not hesitate to contact one of our team who will be able to assist you.
