UKWA shares latest updates from Border Delivery Group

After what has been one of the most turbulent months in the Brexit journey, we know for sure that the UK will not now exit EU on March 29th after all. What we still don’t know is what form our exit (if indeed we do exit) will take and when it will happen.

UKWA has supported the joint initiative by the CBI and TUC, which calls for a change of plan on Brexit, including ‘no deal’ to be ruled out in the interests of businesses and workers alike.

CEO Peter Ward said, “UKWA has consistently warned of the threat to our industry of a ‘no-deal’ scenario, which this week has been deemed by the EU to be more likely than ever; whatever happens in the coming weeks, we need clarity as soon as possible. Continued uncertainty surrounding Brexit is undermining confidence and paralyzing the UK business community.”

Peter has been closely involved in consulting with the Government’s Border Delivery Group on behalf of members and the wider logistics industry. The BDG has been preparing for ‘no deal’ and has provided comprehensive advice and support for businesses, which UKWA has shared on a regular basis with members.

The latest updates from the Government include advice on:

  • Potential changes to customs and VAT in the event of ‘no deal’
  • French customs guidelines: for UK businesses moving goods between the UK and France
  • Changes to immigration rules
  • EU Settlement Status Scheme
  • HMRC requirements on RoRo and RoMot
