BREXIT : Implications on mail after the UK's exit from the EU :Nam et ipsa scientia potestas est

From 1st January the rules for sending and receiving items to and from the EU will change. The UK will treat EU imports the same as it does non-EU imports. The EU will treat UK imports the same as it does non-EU imports.

Sending items to the EU now.

When sending goods abroad, customers will need to complete and attach a customs declaration (CN22 or CN23), available from the Post Office® or Royal Mail's Click&Drop. This does not apply to customers sending items from Northern Ireland to the EU. Letters, postcards and documents are usually exempt.

The recipient 'may' then have to pay customs or VAT charges and a handling fee in the receiving country before they can claim the parcel. These charges will depend on the country they are sending to, the value of the item and whether it is a gift or commercial goods.

Receiving items from abroad

When receiving goods from abroad, recipients 'may' have to pay VAT and duties. The VAT and duties will be applied depending on the type and value of the goods. For gifts over £39 and goods over £135, Royal Mail may collect the VAT and customs duties on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). from the recipient prior to delivery. Letters, postcards and documents are usually exempt.
