Government confirms plans to introduce import controls

On the 10th February 2020 the UK government confirmed plans to introduce import controls on EU goods at the border after the transition period ends on 31 December 2020.

We are leaving the EU’s customs union and single market, taking back control of our borders, and beginning to strike trade deals around the world.

This will mean traders in the EU and GB will have to submit customs declarations and be liable to goods’ checks. Policy easements put in place for a potential no deal exit will not be reintroduced as businesses have time to prepare.

There are a number of reasons for implementing import controls:

    • to keep our borders safe and secure so we know who’s coming in and how often, what they are bringing in, and why
    • to ensure we treat all partners equally as we begin to negotiate our own trading arrangements with countries around the world
    • to collect the right customs, VAT and excise duties
    • the EU has said it will enforce checks on our goods entering the Eurozone. We will likewise enforce our own rules for goods entering the UK

Business can prepare for border controls by making sure they have an Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number and looking into how they want to make declarations such as using a customs agent.

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Michael Gove said:

“The UK will be outside the single market and outside the customs union, so we will have to be ready for the customs procedures and regulatory checks that will inevitably follow.”

“As a result of that we will be in a stronger position, not just to make sure that our economy succeeds outside the European Union but that we are in a position to  take advantage of new trading relationships with the rest of the world.”

 

The Link here will take you to the Government Guidance page ‘Get a UK EORI number to trade within the EU’.

You can rely on R W Freight experience and expertise to keep your cargo moving.
