EXPERTS at the Institute for Export have produced an analysis of the new border arrangements announced by the government last month.
On Monday 13 July, the government published the detail of how imports and exports will work in its long-awaited post-transition border operating model plan, The Border with the European Union, Importing and Exporting Goods.
Experts at the Institute of Export and International Trade have pored over this 200-plus page document to interpret exactly what preparations UK businesses need to be made for trade with the EU post-December 2020.
The Institute then held a webinar, which covered:
- Customs declarations and the role of traders and intermediaries
- Import Duty, Import VAT and related documentation and authorisation requirements
- Customs simplifications and facilitations including Transit and AEO
- 'Pre-lodgement' and 'temporary storage' models at ports
- Processes for 'Roll-on, Roll-off' trade
- Requirement for SPS checks and processes for Controlled Goods
- Requirement for Safety and Security declarations
- The likely roles of the 'Goods Vehicle Movement System' and 'Smart Freight Service'
