Customs information regarding Brexit
The United Kingdom left the EU on January 31, but trade remains unaffected until January 1, 2021.
There will now be a transition period for the rest of 2020, which means that possible customs duties on trade with the UK will not come into effect until on the night between December 31, 2020 and January 1, 2021. Until then, there will be no difference compared to the previous situation when importing from or exporting to the UK.
During the transition period, the aim is that the EU and the UK will negotiate an agreement that includes, among other things, provisions on trade between the EU and the UK. As there is not yet any clear indication regarding the content of the future agreement, we recommend that you monitor developments and prepare yourself and your company as well as you can for any changes. For example, you can check that you have sent a customs handling authorization to your customs agent and ensure that you have an EORI number. You can apply for this from the Swedish Customs Agency.
