Currently the UK will be leaving the EU at the end of 2020. Presently there are no trade agreements in place between the EU & UK so we now need to accept that all goods/freight/purchases between both entities will be subject to duty & vat.
Importation of any goods that are shipped from the UK into Ireland will be subject to Customs Clearance procedures. This in effect means that Importers will need to declare their purchases and pay any import duty or Vat which is applicable. Everybody will be subject to this from the largest multi-national to the individual purchasing on the Internet at home in the evening.
As highly experienced an knowledgable customs clearance agents, Greyhound Express can assist with these clearances. We have electronic access to the Revenue/Customs site and we also have a payment system set up with them for any payments that are due. We have our own credit card machine here for payments from clients.
We have the quickest customs clearance service at Cork Airport. We operate what is known as our "LCP" service. This permits Greyhound to retrieve uncleared goods from the airport customs bond and deliver to our clients without the need for the clearance to happen before hand. We then have 30 days to provide evidence of the clearance. This service would be aimed at Business clients.
