Map the Movement of Goods - your inputs and outputs and ensure that you get the latest advice.
From 1 January, you will need to make declarations and may need to pay any tariffs due when bringing goods into Northern Ireland from Great Britain or from countries outside of the EU. Whether you have to pay duty, and how much that duty is, will depend on where you are bringing the goods from and whether they are ‘at risk’ of onward movement to the EU.
Establish your Commodity Codes for the goods you buy and sell and check tariffs, rules, and tax and duty rates. If you bring goods in or move goods out of the UK or EU, you'll need to get the correct commodity code to put on your declaration. Be aware of any certification, labelling or chemical regulations.
Consider your Data. Make a list of all the data flows into and out of your business. If you receive personal data from the EU, you may need to take action.
Communicate with your suppliers, logistics providers and customers.
