EU preference and non-preference Certs of Origin in a No-Deal BREXIT

No Deal Contingency Planning – Preference and non-Preference Certificates of Origin

The British Chamber of Commerce continue to work to avoid a messy and disorderly exit from the European Union in the 29th March. However, businesses need answers they can base decisions on, no matter the outcome. This includes the trade documentation for use by exporters to prove origin.

Should the United Kingdom reach a withdrawal Agreement with the EU, then the existing documents that you currently issue will continue to be used throughout any period of transition.
As part of their contingency planning for a no-deal Brexit, the British Chambers of Commerce have worked closely with HM Revenue and Customs and DIT on the revised format of preference and non-preference certificates of origin.

In the event of a no-deal Brexit they have made preparations to enable them to provide the industry with continuity of service through the issuance of revised ‘United Kingdom’ documentation. This will be ready and available in time for March 29th.

Non Preferential – Certificates of Origin

In the case of a “No Deal” Brexit the British Chamber of Commerce will issue revised replacement UK Certificates of Origin.

Preferential – EUR1’s and ATR’s – HMRC

In the case of a “No Deal” Brexit these documents will be replaced by a revised certificate. Until we have been informed of the replication of the current Free Trade Agreements in place with those countries where this export document is currently used then this document will not be required.

It is worth noting that the replacement certificates should only be used in the event that the United Kingdom leaves the European Union without a deal.
