UK postpones further import controls

The logistics world is awaiting an announcement by the United Kingdom (UK) on further tightening of customs regulations. According to the latest reports, the introduction will start at the end of 2023.

Financial compensation for Brexit costs

Has your business incurred additional costs due to Brexit? Then make use of the compensation scheme now via the Brexit Adjustment Reserve (BAR). The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RvO) is implementing two compensation schemes for the BAR in the Netherlands: one for Brexit costs incurred and one for adjustment costs yet to be incurred as a result of Brexit.

Existing customs regulations will remain in force

The customs regulations already introduced earlier by the UK because of Brexit remain in force. You can read the outline thereof here. All customs regulations are detailed in the UK government’s Border Operating Model. Make sure you comply with this. This prevents cargo from stalling at the UK border or even as early as the Dutch port.
