EXPORTING

From 1 January 2021 you will need to make customs declarations to move goods into and out of the EU. You should:

  • get an EORI number if you do not already have one. If you do not have one, you may have increased costs and delays. For example, if HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) cannot clear your goods you may have to pay storage fees. Apply for your EORI number in advance. It can take up to a week to get one.
    • If you already have one, check your number. After 31 December 2020 you’ll need an EORI number that starts with GB to move goods to or from the UK. Apply for a new one if yours does not start with GB.
       
  • decide how you want to make customs declarations and whether you need to get someone to deal with customs for you
