    The chances of a No Deal Brexit increased dramatically overnight when the UK Parliament formally voted against the 585 page EU Withdrawal Bill.

    Irish Ferries likely to drop Rosslare-France routes next year

There’s a chance that — from 29th March 2019 — it will become simpler (and potentially faster and cheaper) to avoid the UK’s road network completely and transport goods by sea, using […]

  • The Commercial Invoice’s role as a Customs Document

    One thing is certain: from 29 March 2019, the UK will become a non-EU country. Based on current EU regulations, this means that every trailer carrying goods from the UK could be legally subject to checks at the Irish border. Considering how we deal with non-EU customs at the moment, we predict that the commercial […]
