When the UK’s transition from the EU ends on 31 December 2020, a new era of customs and checks on goods moving between the UK and EU countries will be ushered in.
On Monday 13 July, the government published the detail of how imports and exports will work in its long awaited post-transition border operating model plan, ‘The Border with the European Union, Importing and Exporting Goods’.
Experts at the IOE&IT have pored over this 200-plus page document to interpret exactly what preparations UK businesses need to be make for trade with the EU post-December 2020.
The IOE&IT’s exclusive interpretation and summary will be delivered at a free-to-attend webinar on Thursday 16 July at 11:00-12:00.
The webinar will include coverage of:
– Customs declarations and the role of traders and intermediaries
– Import Duty, Import VAT and related documentation and authorisation requirements
– Customs simplifications and facilitations including Transit and AEO
– ‘Pre-lodgement’ and ‘temporary storage’ models at ports
– Processes for ‘Roll-on, Roll-off’ trade
– Requirement for SPS checks and processes for Controlled Goods – Requirement for Safety and Security declarations
– The likely roles of the ‘Goods Vehicle Movement System’ and ‘Smart Freight Service’
Delegates are invited to ask questions either in advance when registering for the webinar or during the live session. A recording will be made available to all who register.
