Our customs solutions for your flows between the EU and the UK

Brexit: expertise and anticipation

The Brexit negotiations are still going on. We can be sure that the legislation and customs tariffs governing the flow of goods between Europe and the United Kingdom will be turned upside down. At Remant Customs, we will get it fixed from a customs clearance point of view!

Current situation

The UK left the EU on the first of February 2020. There is no change in the trade formalities between both economic parties during the transition period up to 31 December 2020. The UK will exit the current trade agreement with the EU by the 31st of December 2020.

Presently, there is no agreement to manage the post-Brexit trade relationship between the European Union and the United Kingdom. The status of freight moving between Great Britain and Northern Ireland is also undefined.

What to expect? 

Companies importing from or exporting to the United Kingdom should be prepared for new customs procedures and processes when the transition period ends, disregarding the outcome of the negotiations regarding a future partnership.

Even in the event of a free trade agreement, controls and customs formalities will apply to the movement of goods. New trade rules and customs procedures will be introduced. From 1 January 2021, the trade relationship between the EU and the United Kingdom will be changed. Customs formalities and controls will be applied gradually. Full controls will be in place from 1 July 2021.

Any import or export to or from the United Kingdom will be subject to a declarative obligation in the same way as goods from third countries to the European Union:
• customs clearance,
• veterinary or phytosanitary control,
• normative control (CE standards, standard toys, etc.),
• conformity for European standards,
• bio
