United Kingdom firms to enrol in customs system for post-Brexit trading

Steve Barclay said officials will only go to EU meetings that really matter

The institute said: 'Regardless of whether businesses automatically or voluntarily enrol with an EORI number, there is a pressing need for businesses to learn and do training in vital export skills - including completing customs declarations, working with customs agents, weighing their goods for shipment and mitigating risks of delays at the border during what could be a hard period for the UK's ports'.

Non-VAT registered businesses will still have to apply manually.

Only 72,000 firms have registered for an EORI number so far, but the auto-enrolment will see at least another 88,000 more firms receiving an ID.

A fund of £2.1billion was allocated for government departments last month to prepare for no deal, doubling Brexit funding for the year.

Madeleine Sumption, director of the University of Oxford's Migration Observatory, said the data pointed to a return to the pre-financial crisis trend in net European Union migration, and widespread departures of current European Union residents in Britain looked unlikely.

"There can be no time for delay which is why HMRC has allocated thousands of businesses with a trading number to ensure they can continue to trade their goods through Europe from day one", Javid said.

This will help ease the flow of goods at border points and support businesses to trade and grow.

One simple change proven to boost longevity and reduce early death
Previous research has repeatedly suggested that sedentary behaviour is bad and physical activity is good for health. According to the researchers, the public health message may simply be: "Sit less and move more and more often".

"That is perhaps unsurprising given the perceived uncertainties that Brexit has caused - most recently with the prospect of a no-deal Brexit being widely regarded more likely".

But the announcement was given a muted reception by business groups.

Another 63,000 have expressed interest in the October 31 party at Wijk aan Zee, 19 miles northwest of Amsterdam. Overnight, small business exporters will have to contend with growth sapping tariffs and time-consuming customs declarations.

Less than half of companies required to sign up to the economic operator registration and identification (EORI) number have done so, leading to growing concerns about disruption to trade in the event of a no-deal departure from the EU.

The ONS also admitted non-EU migration figures were over-estimated.

While this was positive news for employers in the short term, Davies said the planned introduction of new migration restrictions following Brexit would affect the inflow of new labour, especially after the government announced earlier this week the possible end of free movement for European Union citizens without any transition period on 31 October.

"Sorting EORI numbers is only a first step".
