Brexit entered into force on January 1, 2021. The United Kingdom is now considered by the European Union members as a third country and will therefore be subject to new trade exchange rules having implications on border crossing of goods and on service delivery, as well as the rules for establishing a business in the United Kingdom.
In practice no customs duties are applied on products of EU origin which are exported to the United Kingdom, and the EU does not impose taxation on the entry of products of UK origin imported into the Union as long as these products meet the requirements of the rules of origin.
The practical implications for your exports will be explained in a separate document which will be published shortly on this website.
