Great Britain & Northern Ireland

The pre-lodgement model GVMS has been announced for entry into operation in 2021 after the UK has left the EU's Customs Union and will operate and control its own borders. The border in the English Channel and the Irish Sea now requires additional "paperwork" to be filed in various computer systems to set timeframes to enable effective customs controls. Trading with Great Britain and Northern Ireland will become a "festival of data exchanges" (positive spin). This specialist webinar is dedicated to explaining how the system will work.
