Brexit – Preparing for the end of the Transition period

At midnight 31st December 2020 the Transition Period between the UK and EU will end.

There should be no major changes when importing from outside the EU other than the possible postponement of VAT, referred to later in this document, and the possible change in import duty rates as the UK moves to the World Trade Organisation’s (WTO) tariff.   Please see links https://www.gov.uk/check-tariffs-1-january-2021

Authorisations held for special procedures will be valid up to their normal expiry dates and most import procedures will be the same.

We have prepared a set of guides which will help to answer any questions you may have regarding the movement of goods under the new procedures, as well as provide some clarity as to how these measures will be applied.
