BREXIT & GVMS Guidance

Uniserve are well prepared for the new changes that have been introduced for trading with Europe.

The European Union (EU) now has the same status as every other country around the world that trades with the UK. This means we now have to perform export and import customs declarations and clear freight to allow goods to leave or enter the UK. Similarly, the EU now has the same requirements to customs clear goods traded with the UK.

Our Brexit page is here to help make Brexit an opportunity, not an obstacle.

 

GVMS: the new Customs system from 1st January 2022

The Goods Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS) – a new UK Government Customs system – will come into force from 1st January 2022, affecting imports from the EU. This will bring to an end the easements that were put in place during the Brexit transition period. What this means for you is:

  • From the 1st January 2022 all inbound shipments to the UK will require a pre-lodged Customs entry prior to departure from the EU.
  • Movement Reference Numbers (MRN) from customs entries, or Transit Accompanying Documents (TAD) must be linked to the vehicle registration via the GVMS system by Uniserve.
  • Vehicles will not be allowed to cross the UK border without the GVMS system being updated and all the relevant details included in advance.
  • Amendments to the system after the goods have been loaded will not be possible and penalties will be applied to any undeclared goods.

In short, complying with the new regulations / systems is the only way to avoid unwanted delays and penalty charges. But don’t worry, we’re here to help. We’ve prepared a full guide to the GVMS system which you can download here.

Post-Brexit trading with Europe: keeping your cargo flowing

As of 1st January 2021, we have a trade deal between the EU and the UK. Whilst most goods have avoided costly taxes and duties, the trading environment has still changed. It’s vital that businesses understand these changes and adapt their processes to accommodate the new Customs requirements.

With the help of Uniserve’s logistics, transport and Customs experts you will be able to navigate the new regulations and requirements with confidence. We’ve put together a series of mini-guides, highlighting some of the most important steps in successfully moving goods between the UK and Europe.
