Current position 

The Transition Period has now ended, and a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) , or 'The Deal' has been signed between the UK and EU. 

As a consequence importing and exporting good from and to the EU has become more complex.  It may take more time and cost more to complete the required declarations.  

The FTA applies only to goods and currently suppies of services between the UK and EU are now treated in much the same way for tax purposes as suppies with countries elsewhere in the world.

  • Supply chains
  • Imports of goods from the EU
  • Services from EU suppliers
  • Exports of goods to the EU
  • Services supplied to overseas customers
  • Movement of goods with Northern Ireland
