Preparing for the end of the Brexit transition period: Customs Readiness

On 1 January 2021, the Brexit transition period ended, ceasing the participation of the UK in the EU Single Market and Customs Union. Regardless of the outcome of the ongoing negotiations between the EU and the UK on their future relationship, the end of the transition period will bring substantive changes for companies importing or exporting to Britain, or who have supply chains transiting through the UK.

In this webinar, Gerry Harrahill, Commissioner, Revenue Commissioners, provides a briefing on customs readiness and procedures from 1 January 2021, including important advice for companies in the event there is no agreement between the EU and the UK.
