Brexit

The United Kingdom left the European Union on 31 January 2020 and is now officially a third country to the EU. However, a transition period until 31 December 2020 applies.

During the transition period, there is no impact on taxation and customs.

For the period as of January 1st, 2021:
The UK and EU are still negotiating the terms of a post-Brexit agreement, but a ‘no-deal’ scenario remains a possibility. In any case UK’s departure will have serious consequences on logistics flows from January 1st, 2021 onwards. All stakeholders must prepare for them.

  • Customs clearance processes for shipments between the EU and the UK are likely to lead to higher operating costs for logistics operators. Some of them already mentioned that they will (in different ways) pass over the costs to the shippers.
