Helping with Post Brexit Trade with the EU.







Brexit has thrown Up New Regulations - Access Experts To Help

Background

The UK left the EU on 1st January 2021. In the aftermath, however, there is now a baffling” array of post-Brexit rules and regulations that now threaten much of the UK’s export trade to the EU

It had been claimed that the Trade Deal that the UK Government agreed with the EU, was a “zero-tariff” and “zero-quotas” deal that would allow free and simple access to the single market. Unfortunately, however, Britain’s EU departure now appears to be anything but pain-free.

Disruption

There is significant disruption at UK borders as a result of Brexit customs changes, disruption that is expected to increase. Against the background of the confusion, delivery firms have suspended services, retailers have halted sales to customers in the EU, UK fishermen warned they would not be able to sell their fresh produce into EU markets because of delays at borders, etc

There are also problems with consignments between Great Britain and Northern Ireland as new border checks have caught many businesses unawares. For many, the sheer complexity will prove too much and they will simply not be able to export to the EU.

The Problems

Some of the problems are because the trade deal was put in place very quickly. Other problems are because the sheer complexity of the new Trade arrangements including “rules of origin”, some of which have not been finally determined. Only goods made up largely of parts that originate in the UK qualify as tariff-free.

Major organizations are baffled by what the new regulations mean, let alone SMEs who have never had to deal with the kind of paperwork that is now required.

The new import/export formalities are proving very problematic for businesses of all sizes. Many trucks are stuck in depots, unable to head to the ports due to the inability for the necessary documentation and information to be provided to them
