The British Chambers of Commerce and Sussex Chamber of Commerce continue to work to avoid a messy and disorderly exit from the European Union. However, businesses need answers they can base decisions on, no matter the outcome. This includes the trade documentation to prove origin.
Should the United Kingdom reach a withdrawal Agreement with the EU, then the existing documents that Sussex Chamber of Commerce currently issues to exporters will continue to be used throughout any period of transition.
As part of our contingency planning for a no-deal Brexit, our colleagues at the British Chambers of Commerce have worked closely with HM Revenue and Customs and Department of International Trade on the revised format of preference and non-preference certificates of origin.
In the event of a no-deal Brexit we have made preparations to enable us to provide exporters with continuity of service through the issuance of revised ‘United Kingdom’ documentation.
