Trading goods with the EU

New rules are now in place

The UK has now left the single market and customs union and there are steps that your business needs to take to meet the new rules.

We ran a series of events to answer questions around the new rules and how they affect the way your business trades with the EU.

The process for importing and exporting goods has changed and your business needs to be ready.

What you need to do

If you don't

  • your goods may be refused entry into the EU

  • you will be responsible for paying the costs of examination

  • you will need to pay for storage

  • you will need to pay to rectify the problems

  • and the issues cannot be rectified, you will need to pay for the goods to be destroyed
