The Brexit transition period has now ended. Changes have now come into effect for businesses that trade goods with Europe or represent businesses who do. Register on our webinars to find out what you need to do now to keep trading with the EU.
The free trade agreement announced on 24 December is the first that the EU has ever reached based on zero tariffs and zero quotas. We have always been clear that this means there will be new customs processes on goods moving between GB and the EU.
By registering for our webinars below, or watching our videos on HMRC's YouTube channel you can familiarise yourself with the new customs processes and what you need to do before you trade goods with the EU.
The trader checklist is also still available on GOV.UK to help you ensure you’re familiar with the new rules that affect you.
