Automating Brexit Data and information will be the key to smooth 24 hour 7 day a week clearances, by sharing information now with Metro we can expedite arrivals and departures for your EU business.

But things can still go wrong if information is incomplete, inaccurate or missing.

Typical errors are a result of poor information, an incorrect origin classification or invalid EORI information for shipper or consignee mean clearances and cargo will be held under query by HMRC at the border and your supply chain interrupted.

The priority is to review and audit the information required for an entry.

The key information outside of the basic data such as your EORI number, deferment information and the transport route are commodity specific. Commodity codes have to be accurate, additional quantity and value codes checked, the origin of the goods, preference rates and any potential anti-dumping or counter surveillance duties must be considered.

Metro can work with you to health check the data you hold, is accurate and up to date, and consider the repercussions of the new UK Global tariff on your business.

From a briefing and introduction to a full review of your 2021 requirements in addition to setting up your post-Brexit template, our Customs experts can guide you to include current flow, forecasts, Incoterms, origin confirmation and classification implications, to ensure that youā€™re totally prepared for the changes being triggered on the 1st January.
