EU Exit: Importing

To continue trading with the EU, you will need to follow new rules for importing and exporting, including changes to customs processes and licensing.

  • Get expert help – we recommend you get a contract in place as soon as you can with a customs intermediary like a freight forwarder or customs broker.

  • And if you’re preparing to move goods under the Northern Ireland Protocol, register for the free Trader Support Service.

  • The SME Brexit Support Fund could give you up to £2,000 to help with training or professional advice, if your business has up to 500 employees and no more than £100 million annual turnover. The fund is not open for applications yet and we will share further details when available.
