No trader can have failed to notice the new requirements when purchasing from Great Britain since Brexit.
The Northern Ireland Protocol was the most significant development in Brexit for this island as it meant no physical border infrastructure between NI and IE; however, that was only possible through the introduction of customs and regulatory checks on goods moving from GB to NI instead.
Since 01/01/21, the NI ‘Importer’ has a legal obligation to complete customs declarations and declare if their goods are ‘at risk’ of entering the EU.
THE EVENTS OF LAST WEEK ‘ON THE HILL’ HASN’T CHANGED THAT.
TSS was setup to provide traders with an online Customs Agent service to submit all necessary Import Declarations and Safety and Security declarations for its GB-NI movements.
