On 24 December 2020, the United Kingdom and the European Union reached a post-Brexit trade agreement. But the deal doesn’t mean ‘business as usual’ for shipping between the UK and the EU.
Tariffs, such as import duty, will be eliminated on the trade of products shipped between the UK and the EU from 1 January 2021, depending on the origin of the goods. However, even with this deal in place, businesses and carriers will now face more paperwork and administration when shipping, meaning increased costs and adjustments to supply chains.
Customs clearance will now be required for all goods moving between the UK and the EU, including for return shipments. You will need to declare the goods you are sending by completing a commercial invoice. You will also need to follow the revised VAT rules.
