UKFT launches new Brexit Guidance Toolkit


UKFT has published its latest Brexit Guidance Toolkit for members – a comprehensive guide to tariffs when selling to the EU and importing into the UK, import and export VAT, exhibitions and samples, CITES, Common Transit Convention, contracts and T&Cs, design copyright, standards, REACH, labelling, CE and UKCA marking and more.

UKFT is in close contact with the government as the negotiations with the EU on a Free Trade Agreement continue.

However, even if a deal is concluded before the end of the Transition Period, how goods are moved to and from the EU will be very different and companies should be prepared for major changes.

UKFT is available to work with members to enable you to chart the best course for your business. We are here to help you make sense of the new rules and offer strategies for how your business can best adapt to the new arrangements.

Our team of industry experts can help you through the rules and regulations, as well as assist you by checking your customs declarations. Our trusted associate members can also advise you on logistics, VAT, tax and legal issues you will inevitably encounter along the way.
