When trading with UK partners, Brexit will lead to various tax burdens. In particular, Brexit will trigger various (negative) consequences for VAT and customs when importing from and exporting to the UK. Adequate planning is required to prepare companies for any scenario, including the worst case scenario of a no-deal hard Brexit.
Businesses should therefore check their current supply chains, verify the consequences of a (no-deal hard) Brexit on these supply chains and, if possible, consider which solutions are possible to limit the adverse effects of this type of Brexit. Tiberghien can offer a “Brexit scan” that allows business to have a clear view on their position and options.
In this context, we’d also like to draw your attention to the recent reinforcement of our Indirect Tax team with a.o. Jurgen Gevers, a highly specialized and experienced lawyer in the field of customs and excise duties.
Our team is available on request for a general outlook on the position of your company, possibly followed by a tailor-made ‘Brexit-scan’.
Please feel free to contact our VAT, customs and excise team (click here) should you have any questions or remarks.
