Although the detailed outcomes are still uncertain, we can be sure that Brexit will result in changes to Customs formalities.
The United Kingdom has been a large trading nation for centuries, and already has efficient processes where the majority of Customs declarations are submitted electronically and cleared rapidly.
RW Freight has been a successful freight forwarding company since 1971, two years before the UK joined what was then known as the Common Market.
We have a wealth of experience of both import and export Customs clearance procedures to and from countries inside and outside Europe and can handle all customs requirements on your behalf.
On 23 August the government published a series of technical notices giving guidance on preparing for exporting and importing if there is a ‘no withdrawal agreement’ Brexit
One of the most important steps which can be taken by importers and exporters in preparation for a possible ‘no withdrawal agreement’ Brexit is to apply for an EORI number. The Economic Operator Registration and Identification number, which is already required for trading from the UK with countries which are outside the EU.
For businesses in Great Britain, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man who import from or export to the EU and do not have an EORI number, the HMRC advice is to register for one now. The application form is simple and only takes a few minutes to complete on-line.
