The UK is due to leave the EU on 31 January 2020. Although the Government has made a draft agreement with the EU, it is still possible that there will be a no-deal Brexit. Furthermore, if there is no deal it is possible that the UK and EU could enter into agreements for specific areas.

Within the EU most goods may move freely between and through countries without any formalities and for that reason are known as “despatches” rather than imports or exports. At the moment this still includes the UK. However, if the UK leaves the customs union and single market such freedom of movement will no longer apply and some formalities will be necessary at the interface between the UK and the EU.
