As of 1st January 2021, the UK is no longer part of the customs and tax (VAT and excise) territory of the European Union. The movement of goods between the UK and the EU is governed by the newly signed agreement which applies on a provisional basis.
In fact, given the very late conclusion of the negotiations, the Council adopted a decision to apply the agreement on a provisional basis.
This section provides information on how to deal with this important change. Further information on the application of customs and excise duties regulations can be obtained by contacting the competent local Customs Offices or the electronic Help desk .
