BFM considers the new border operating model from January next year

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy has produced a brief but informative presentation on how the UK border will operate for January next year. It considers a whole host of topics that business needs to address including the additional costs that may arise from leaving the EU. This includes duty, VAT, customs clearance, tariff, loss of freight transport preference and new the labelling and packaging requirements.

A checklist accompanies these considerations and is set against the staged timescales for the introduction of changes to importing and exporting procedures. Consistent with the theme of highlighting the questions that businesses need to address, the presentation then focusses on various operational modes of transport from road, to rail, air and parcel.

To help members through the transition, BFM has produced a 4-page guide on the new importing and exporting procedures that will be needed when the UK leave the EU. For more information, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
