Preparing for Brexit
Where to start:
To start with, if you have not already done so, do the ‘Brexit Check’ (https://www.gov.uk/transition). It is a very useful guide for both businesses and individuals to see what they need to prepare ahead of 1 January 2021.
The BFI’s Brexit Q&A is also a very useful resource: https://www.bfi.org.uk/strategy-policy/policy-statements/brexit-end-transition-period-answering-questions-from-screen-sectors
OTHER USEFUL LINKS:
Taking goods temporarily out of the UK:
Movement of goods (export):
Intellectual property and the transition period:
You need an EORI number to move goods between Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) or the Isle of Man, and other countries. You may also need a separate EORI number if you move goods to or from Northern Ireland.
If you do not have an EORI, you may have increased costs and delays. For example, if HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) cannot clear your goods you may have to pay storage fees. For more details: https://www.gov.uk/eori
