Questions

Here are the most frequently raised topics last week, with links to where you can find detailed answers.

1. Supplementary declarations
Supplementary declarations – the final declaration in the import process – remain the lead topic for traders. See the user guide on completing supplementary declarations here.

2. ‘At Risk’ Goods
You can still apply for the UK Trader Scheme allowing authorised businesses to self-declare that the goods they are moving into NI are not ‘at risk’ of onward movement to the EU (i.e. Ireland) and so have no tariff liabilities.

3. Rules of Origin
You need to include proof of origin when making supplementary declarations – see guide here – to take advantage of tariff-free trade under the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement signed at the end of 2020 (see webinar video here).

4. Controlled goods
When moving controlled goods from GB to NI, there are additional data fields you will need to complete – see the data guide here for more information.

5. Moving goods from Isle of Man (IoM) to NI
As IoM is part of the UK customs territory, goods moving from IoM to NI follow the same processes as a GB to NI movement.
