Following your feedback from our poll on LinkedIn and in line with recent client demand, we are pleased to share the first instalment of a five-part Brexit Guidance Series to help address your Brexit concerns.
In recent weeks, delays have been announced to the originally proposed timeline for introducing full UK border controls on imports from the European Union.
The delays will see the Stage 2 border controls, originally planned for April 2021, delayed until October 2021 and the Stage 3 border controls, originally planned for July 2021, delayed until January 2022. This comes as a result of the ongoing impact of Covid-19 on businesses and pressure from industries advocating for more time to prepare.
We have seen delayed declarations being used at ports incorrectly to keep the port traffic flowing, meaning businesses are seeing shipments arrive at their warehouses without prior knowledge and no customs declaration having been completed. A retrospective customs declaration should be made for these shipments to ensure they are declared compliantly.
