Common Transit Convention After Brexit
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.

Following our news item earlier this week regarding GVMS, we are now making customers aware of another piece of Customs legislation that is about to change. From 1st January 2022, certain exporters from the EU will need to be REX registered.
The Goods Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS) – a new UK Government Customs system – will come into force next year, affecting imports from the EU. This will bring to an end the easements that were put in place during the Brexit transition period.
The Government has announced the UK’s new Customs tariffs. The UK Global Tariff (UKGT) will replace the current EUs’ Common External Tariff (EU CET).
