“Since the beginning of 2022, many changes for entrepreneurs due to Brexit”

Evofenedex, VNO-NCW, MKB-Nederland and the Dutch-British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC) are calling on entrepreneurs to prepare well for the new import rules and border controls with the UK, which will come into effect from next year.

“On January 1, 2022, Brexit will officially be one year behind us. For businesses, this means, among other things, that the deferred customs declaration of import flows into the United Kingdom (UK) will expire and that customs declarations and full checks will be submitted. Thus, it would be wise for entrepreneurs to read these new rules carefully and prepare in time,” according to the business associations.

The organizations today organized a webinar for their members on the latest developments regarding the Anglo-Dutch trade relationship.

Phase II BOM
The UK has chosen to progressively introduce import rules and border controls via the Border Operating Model (BOM). This is done in 3 stages. Since January 2021, there have been rules and controls for a limited set of products, the so-called controlled list. This was done in an effort to reduce customs procedures in the first year after Brexit, in order to avoid delays at the border. This will change from 2022; The second phase of the BOM then commences and the commitment to a fully completed British Import Declaration takes effect.

Moreover, so-called advance notifications on animal and agricultural products are required from next year. Exporters must also use pre-warehousing or temporary storage to import goods from the EU. The third and final phase of the List of Substances will come into effect from July 2022, with essentially new rules for animals and animal or plant products.

To mitigate the impact of Brexit on the member states, the European Commission has established the British Exit Adjustment Reserve (BAR). Member states receive an amount from this fund that can be used for various purposes, such as creating jobs, taking border measures and financial compensation for entrepreneurs who have had to incur additional costs in preparing for Britain’s exit from the European Union. Due to its location and close commercial relationship with the UK, the Netherlands can claim a significant portion of the BAR: €810 million.

The above four organizations advise their members to continue to follow UK regulations closely, coordinate with the British importer in a timely manner and use BAR compensation options next year and provide insight into the costs already incurred. Finally, they called on the incoming government to expedite the submission of concrete proposals to compensate the affected entrepreneurs.
