Brexit and Rhenus

To ensure our customers are prepared for Brexit, we have prepared the following information. If you have any questions, please get in touch: brexit@ie.rhenus.com

PREPARING YOU FOR BREXIT:

The UK will leave the EU on 31.12.2020, having informed the EU that it does not intend to extend the transitional period. This means from 01.01.2021, all freight movements between the UK & the EU will be subject to customs procedures. We have taken extensive steps to minimise any impacts caused by Brexit. Our priority is to maintain a seamless service to our customers, irrespective of the challenges ahead.

4. IDENTIFY VALUE, INCOTERMS, ORIGIN, GROSS, NET WEIGHT AND COMMODITY CODES

The importer needs to know the value of goods for trade stats and calculation of VAT/Duty. Both Importers & Exporters will need to know the origin of goods and the goods gross and nett weights, which form part of the customs declaration.

Value, origin of goods and commodity codes    

WHY SHOULD I GIVE RHENUS DIRECT CUSTOMS AUTHORISATION

By providing Rhenus with direct customs clearance authorisation you are ensuring Rhenus can complete all Import and/or Export declarations on your behalf. This will be a necessary requirement for ALL UK Import and/or Export shipments.

Incoterms 2020

Post-Brexit, the importance of Incoterms will increase substantially; the Incoterms you agree with your supplier or customer will determine who will pay VAT & Duty when the goods clear customs.

Therefore, we advise our customers to familiarise themselves with the underlying regulations and their implications. Please click on the image for the full version.
