Irish Customs Update

Northern Ireland Customs Clearance

Following the finalised Brexit Agreement, we now have a clear understanding of the processes required for Northern Ireland Customs Clearances.

 As from the 1st January 2021, to guarantee a smooth door to door transit for shipments to Northern Ireland, Simarco will be processing all Northern Ireland Customs Clearances “OnLine” from our Terminals in Witham and Stoke via the TSS System.

 

 

 Postponed VAT Accounting (PVA)

Ireland (IE) Imports from UK & ‘Rest-of-World’

 The Irish government has authorised Postponed VAT Accounting (PVA) effective from 1st January 2021, removing the need for registered companies to PAY VAT at the time of Import and then having to reclaim the VAT in the VAT return.
