Transition (Brexit) Statement
Prior to the announcement on the 24th December 2020 of the UK-EU Trade And Cooperation Agreement EMS had reviewed the Government transition guidelines https://www.gov.uk/transition to prepare for the potential outcomes of a deal or no deal.
From EMS’ perspective, we already traded in the UK, the EU and the rest of the world, as a result, we had in place the required systems and administration to provide the required documentation to manage a seamless transition, applying the required documentation changes to EU customers. The only question outstanding was one of whether tariffs would be applied.
The announcement on the 24th December 2020 of the agreement confirmed no tariffs would apply to shipments between the UK and EU. Therefore EMS’ preparations covering documentation were complete ensuring a smooth passage through customs.
We will continue to monitor the situation for any developments, otherwise, at the time of writing it seems to be business as usual. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask your Sales or Purchasing contact.
