Navigating Brexit with Firstpoint

Whilst we’re a few weeks into Brexit, you may still be struggling to navigate your way through the many new processes and procedures now needed to move your goods in and out of the EU.

Here at Firstpoint, it’s our mission to keep your business moving, whatever you’re sending and wherever it needs to go, regardless of what’s going on in the world around us. 

Brexit doesn’t need to be another headache for your business. To make it as simple as possible for our customers,  we’ve put together a checklist for importing and exporting, a list of answers to your most Frequently Asked Questions, and a Brexit jargon buster. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

What has changed?

With new laws in place since 1 January 2021 when the UK officially left the EU,  the way shipments are processed for Imports and Exports has changed, with more documentation and checks than before. To ensure your business operations continue to run smoothly and to prevent any delays, you need to make sure you prepare carefully.

Custom Procedure Codes, Commodity Codes, Deferment Account and EORI numbers are probably all terms you have heard of by now, but perhaps you’re not sure exactly what they are, why you need them and what you need to do with them? Well, that’s where we come in!

At Firstpoint we have been preparing for Brexit for some time, our staff have been trained and our systems adapted, meaning you can rest assured that our experienced team are here to help. From documents to processes, we can take care of everything so you don’t have to!
