The customs declarations process has changed now the UK has left the EU. Customs procedures will apply to businesses in England, Scotland and Wales when it comes to trading with the EU (and when moving goods to Northern Ireland) to ensure your goods can clear customs. The UK will now operate a full, external border with the EU. There will be new border controls imposed on imports from the EU to the UK, which will be introduce in stages.
Customs declarations for goods that are not being controlled will be delayed until 30th June 2021. If you decide to use ‘delayed declarations’ then these will end on 1 July 2021. After this date you can either continue to use simplified customs procedures or switch to making a full custom import declaration. You can check the tariffs that will apply to different categories of imported goods on the Government’s website here.
In order to prepare a full customs declaration, you will need some key information such as the EORI number, commodity code, customs procedure code, the value of the goods, the weight and size as well as the country of origin. You can obtain an EORI number by following this link.
