Sharing of information from the Boulogne-sur-Mer Brexit unit

On 1 January 2022, the application of reinforced customs rules will come into force at the Brexit borders, including

In France, the reverse charge of VAT will be compulsory from 1 January 2022, which means that a British supplier who exports under the DDP incoterm will be obliged to hold a VAT number in France. If not, a change of incoterm is to be expected, DDP not being recommended for trade with third countries.

In the UK / UK Customs Controls

  • UK export to EU

Exports will be subject to the strict regulation not applied for the moment: EORI+EXS+GVMS/GMR/MRN

Info on: https://www.gov.uk/topic/business-tax/import-export

Transport of empty packages and pallets from the UK to France (including from the Republic of Ireland using the UK landbridge) will have to be accompanied by an EXS/ Exit Summary Declaration. Without the EXS the truck will be blocked as it is not identified.

  • EU to UK imports :

In order to regulate imports, many of which have not been declared since 1 January 2021 by UK importers, from 1 January 2022 it will be compulsory to produce (to the UK authorities) the EORI of the declarant and not the EORI of the importer if he is not the declarant.

Be vigilant and anticipate by informing your British suppliers or buyers and your hauliers because their drivers will have to adapt to the strict application of the rules on the British side since in 2021 flexibility was the rule.
