The EU leaders granted the UK a six-month extension to Brexit with a deadline of 31st October. With this deadline fast approaching the future relationship between the UK and the EU remains unclear. The biggest impact is likely to stem from changes the Government will make in customs arrangements between the UK and the EU following the UK’s exit.
These changes will affect you whether you are an occasional sender or receiver of items to and from the EU, someone who buys marketplace items from abroad or a business posting to the EU on a daily basis.
If the UK and the EU fail to reach an agreement, the UK will leave the EU on 31st October 2019, known as a ‘No Deal’ Brexit.
No Deal Brexit:
- UK leaving the Customs Union
- UK trading on World Trade Organisation (WTO) terms
- Requirement for Commercial Invoices for commercial shipments or Customs Declarations (CN23’s) for postal shipments for all traffic between the EU and the UK
- Requirement for electronic pre-advice data for traffic between the EU and the UK
- VAT and duties payable on goods entering UK from EU, and goods from the UK to the EU
