Register for an EORI number

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, you’ll need an EORI number to continue trading between the EU and UK. You can apply for an EORI number now, even if you don’t use it. Please find further information here.

22

Apply for Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP)

In February 2019, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) introduced Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP) for customs which will make importing easier for an initial period under a “no-deal”. TSP will delay the full declaration for imports entering the UK through a RoRo port – only MRN of the Simplified Frontier Declaration (SFD) or EORI must be transmitted. Therefore, your registration with the TSP will be a requirement for DHL to smoothly on-forward your shipment to the UK. Please find further details here.

33

Apply for a duty deferment account

With the appropriate deferment account, any import VAT due is only paid on the 15th of the month following the month of import. This means importers can delay cash payment by an average of 30 days. But you need to provide a financial guarantee in order to obtain this. Please find further information here.
