The process of getting your goods across international borderscan be confusing and frustrating. Customs clearance not only requires a great deal of preparation and documentation, but its procedures also differ from country to country. While international trade is simpler now than it was a few decades ago – thanks to the lowering of trade barriers, simplification of rules and introduction of new technology – customs clearance remains a challenge. And of course, Brexit has impacted on proceduresinto and out of Northern Ireland.

 The Northern Ireland protocol has removed the need for border controls on the island of Ireland but sets outnew rules for goods moving from Great Britain into Northern Ireland.

In order for NI businesses to grasp the resulting opportunities they shouldbe clear on procedures – and there is help available! Our panel of experts from Easy Customs outline the issues and opportunities and answer your queries around cross border customs clearance.
