BREXIT DATE has been reset for January 31st 2020
There is still a possibility of a ‘no deal’ scenario, if the agreement is not approved by all parties before the deadline (31 January 2020) passes. In that case, both parties may encounter problems, like long queues at ports and aviation delays.
Your business should already have received a letter from HMRC advising what you need to do to be ready, with the following advice:
Don’t worry, if you have not yet appointed a freight/clearing Agent. We can support your requirements and offer a full import/export customs declaration service. Please contact our team as soon as possible discuss so we can ensure everything is in place before the leaving date.
If you have already appointed an Agent, please contact us with their information. We shall need to know their details to help avoid potential delays at the Port/Airports.
Once you have your EORI number and have appointed and Clearing agent, the following further actions are also recommended:
You need to make customs declarations for your goods. Decide who will do this. It could be a transport company, agent or yourself. If you decide to appoint an agent, they will need instructions.
Check that your customer is ready to bring your goods into their country and are following the country’s customs processes.

The new date for the UK’s departure is 31 January 2020. However, the UK may leave earlier if the UK and EU parliaments approve the withdrawal agreement before then.
If the UK parliament and the European parliament vote in favour of the Brexit agreement, a transition period will follow, which will last until 31 December 2020. During this period, all EU rules and regulations will continue to apply to the UK. Virtually nothing will change for businesses or for the public. This transition period may be extended once by two years, meaning it could remain in place until 31 December 2022.
At the end of the transition period Customs declarations are anticipated, however, it is by no means a certainty as the EU have left the door open for the UK to change its mind on leaving the single market and customs union.
We shall continue to update this page with important changes. In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like help preparing your business for Brexit please don’t hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the form below.
