As you may be aware when we come back in the New Year there will be a few changes to the way we ship goods to Europe and Northern Ireland.
If you currently ship out of the UK or may do so at anytime in the future this change affects you.
See the copy of the poster for the Trader Support Service which gives some information in the upcoming changes and offers assistance for shipping or receiving into Northern Ireland.
If you have a GB EORI number you will also need to apply for an XI EORI number for shipping to NI – for more info and to apply for a GB EORI number click here.
In order assist in getting prepared for the changes that are coming and to help speed up the process please can you send in the following with any orders that will be leaving the UK (including NI)
- Commercial Invoice. Consignor Address & EORI number/ Consignee Address & EORI number / Invoice Number / Commodity code for each item on the Invoice / Country of Origin for each item on the invoice / Description, Quantity, Cost and currency / Buyer’s PO number / Method of Shipment / INCOTERMS® 2020 / Where from and going to / Signed with Blue Ink & Company Stamp on top of the Signature.
