Customs Export & Import Procedures

It is envisaged that Ireland will be the most heavily impacted by ‘Brexit’ out of its European counterparts, given the depths of our trading relationships with the United Kingdom.

Irrespective of what agreements come into operation between the European Union and the UK, trade between Ireland and the UK will be heavily disrupted; goods will no longer be free to move without being placed under customs control.

From a company’s perspective, goods moving into and out of the UK would require the necessary customs documentations to be sent to customs officials in advance of any movement. For Customs, duty, VAT and tariffs may need to be levied on the goods and additional regulatory and licensing checks performed. While negotiations are still ongoing, the consistent message for Irish businesses must be one of encouragement to be prepared for all eventualities so as to create an Irish SME base that is resilient and robust, irrespective of the Brexit that eventually emerges.

Enterprise Ireland & the Local Enterprise Offices recognise that since Ireland entered the single market, the requirement for customs processes and procedures has fallen away for

those clients serving the EU market. While some clients trade with Third Countries (Non-EU) and would have relevant customs experiences, the majority of the exposed clients will be interacting with customs procedures for the first time. This requires changes to their accounts and records, and a depth of knowledge and experience that they currently lack. Therefore, there are new capabilities that businesses must develop.

The Customs Export & Import Procedures workshops will highlight the Customs facilities available to importers and exporters which give opportunities to minimise import duty payments and ensure compliance with customs procedures. The workshop is designed to embed best practice into businesses from across all industry sectors. It will address the customs implications of trading with a Third Country (Non-EU) in advance of the United Kingdom’s exit from the Single Market and Customs Union.
