As the leaving date for Brexit has been extended until the 12th April 2019, the chances of a No Deal seems to have increased over the past few weeks, and everyone needs to be prepared for that eventuality.
We recommend that you apply for an EORI number immediately if you haven’t done so already. If you have not got an EORI Number you will be unable to export or Import any cargo to and from Europe in the event of a no deal.
Please follow the Link to apply https://www.gov.uk/eori
We would also highly recommend you apply for Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP), which will help you Import goods into the country without having to clear cargo at the border. We have been told by Customs that less than 10% of Importers have applied and time is running out.
Please follow the Link to apply https://www.gov.uk/guidance/register-for-simplified-import-procedures-if-the-uk-leaves-the-eu-without-a-deal.
We are hopeful like the rest of the country that a deal can be finalised before the 12th April 2019, but we strongly advise you to apply for both the EORI and TSP at your earliest convenience.
If you need any help and assitance please contact either Mike Harrison or myself who will be happy to help.
