Common Transit Convention After Brexit

by | Dec 18, 2018

After Brexit, the UK will continue to remain in the Common Transit Convention (CTC), ensuring simplified cross-border trade for UK businesses exporting their goods.

The UK leaves the EU in March 2019, and negotiating a deal regarding its membership has been a high priority.

The CTC is used for the movement of goods between the EU member states, the European Free Trade Association countries (Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Switzerland), also including Turkey, Macedonia and Serbia.

The UK has successfully agreed membership after Brexit and this would apply to any new trading relationship with the EU or in the event of a no deal.

Continued membership will mean traders will only have to make customs declarations and pay import duties when they arrive at their final destination.
