EU to UK Exports: REX Numbers will be needed from 1st January 2022

Nov 26, 2021 | Article, Brexit, News

Following our news item earlier this week regarding GVMS, we are now making customers aware of another piece of Customs legislation that is about to change.

For the first 12 months after the UK left the EU, HMRC allowed an easement for Customs documentation, whereby a statement of origin was not needed to claim a preferential (0%) rate of duty for goods imported into the UK from the EU. This will be coming to an end next year, as your business will now require a REX number.

This is how REX will affect your business:

  • From 1st January 2022, all export invoices from the EU to the UK must show a statement of origin in order for the preferential rate of duty to be claimed.
  • Where the value of the consignment is €6,000 or less, the statement of origin can be made by any exporter. However, for consignments that are above €6,000, the EU exporter must have a Registered Exporter (REX) number and include it in the statement.
  • If the exporter is not REX registered, they cannot make a valid statement of origin for goods with a value exceeding €6,000.
  • If you import goods into the UK and your supplier’s invoice does not have a valid statement of origin, then Customs duty will be due on importation.

For further guidance on how the changes will affect your business, please get in touch with us at brexit@ugroup.co.uk
