Checklist for exporting from the EU to the UK post-Brexit

Exporting into the UK from the EU checklist

The UK is no longer an EU member state. It is not part of the customs union or single market and therefore different rules apply to exporting and importing. For many EU businesses, this is a confusing time. Many  have concentrated on EU sales and consequently have limited experience of customs declarations, licenses, VAT on imports and rules of origin. 

This EU-UK Trade & Cooperation Agreement finalised at the eleventh hour has done little to alleviate the confusion, though it does offer tariff-free trade for qualifying goods. 

This guide aims to identify the main points you need to consider to export from the EU to the UK in the post-Brexit era, summarised at the end into a handy step-by-step guide. 

We hope you find it useful!

What’s included:

The download includes six critical areas that EU businesses must cover, including the HS Code, customs declarations, incoterms and rules of origin. At the end, we’ve also included a handy checklist of 10 points to help ensure you’re ready to export into the UK.

Resources and reports from Go Exporting present a comprehensive, progressive and modern approach to understanding exports. Not only it summarises the current export process in seamless and structured manner to overcome hurdles in the current structure but also it provides innovative and out of the box approach to challenge the legacy export model. I think continuous engagement with Go Exporting can keep a company on a growth trajectory to exceed their export targets.
