UK/EU Customs Checks

In: Brexit
15th November 2018


As a ‘third country’, UK exporters to the EU after Brexit may in future be required to make customs declarations.

Your business should consider

  • What customs procedures do you comply with for trade with non-EU markets?
  • Are you ready, if the need arises, to apply these to imports from or exports to the EU?

Resources and information

HMRC has published an information pack to help businesses plan ahead plan for the contingency of a ‘no deal’ EU Exit. The pack includes guidance on how Customs and Excise could be affected and actions to take now. Information is split by topic and audience, and flowcharts. Future editions of this pack will include information from other government departments responsible for policies that will impact trade at the border:

To register for the HMRC’s EU Exit update service for future guidance and updates: on GOV.UK, search for ‘HMRC videos, webinars and email alerts’, click to register to get business help and education emails, enter your email and select ‘EU Exit’.
