Documentation for a No Deal Brexit

19/08/2020 update

Yesterday I attended a seminar organised by the Chamber of Commerce entitled UK Border Customs Controls From 1/1/21

Liam Smyth is clearly very knowledgeable about the subject and walked through 16 slides explaining all the things that exporters will be responsible to undertake correctly from the beginning of next year (or in some cases which might be deferred to July 21) and all with the caveat that things might change depending on the negotiations with the EU which are currently stuck in last minute brinkmanship. And you had better do it right or your goods will be turned back before they reach the port.

I was left with two major feelings at the end of the hour:

  • If you are exporting to the EU, you need to get all the documentation correct and even getting your head round the mass of acronyms which is the language of these documents, is daunting:
    • EORI number,
    • Staged or full declarations,
    • CFSP (Customs Freight Simplified Procedures),
    • GVMS (a notification of intent to proceed to port),
    • SAFE framework (World Customs Organisation pre-arrival declarations and risking),
    • etc etc.
  • The scale of the issue
    If your goods and services are anything other than absolutely standard, you will need to ask an expert and they are going to be extremely busy. The Chamber recons that there are 180,000 traders in the UK who only trade with the EU but not with the rest of the world and have never previously had to deal with this level of documentation (this is over 55% of all UK exporting companies).  They expect the number of customs declarations will grow from 55m to 300m as a result of us leaving the EU.

The tsunami of paperwork that is heading towards EU exporters is going to be overwhelming and the only way to handle it will be to update compute systems to manage it and we all know the problems of getting software updated in a rush.

Grants available

The Government has made available £50m of grant funding available for updating systems, on a first come first served basis and it is being allocated at the rate of about £600k per week... More

The IT element of the grants can be used for

  • Buying packages of software
  • installing the software
  • buying and installing related hardware
  • training employees to use the software

TheDevTeam are already supporting our existing clients in this process and welcome new enquiries. 


12/06/2020 update
The government just announced that it will spend £50m to help train customs agents to enable 150,000 UK companies to handle an anticipated 200m extra declarations after Brexit.

We will all need to prepare!


After Brexit here is what you might need 

  • Driving Permit
  • EORI number (Application forms
  • Customers Declaration (form C1800 to access Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) and give traders full contact details that need to be linked to their badge. 
    List of 603 Customs Agents available on request.
  • Export Licence
  • Commercial Invoice
  • Certificate of Insurance for Goods
  • Transit Document
  • Safety and Security Declaration

We would like to put together a consortium of Freight Forwarding companies to put this documentation together and share the cost of protecting everybody against the risk of this happening in October.

We have a lot of experience of creating standard forms packed with the data from a database..

The more companies that join in, the cheaper this will be….

Grants for preparing for new Customs declarations

The government has made available £50m of grants to assist exporting companies to adjust to the new documentation requirements

Our core team has more experience than 85% of all programmers

The reality today is that nearly everything we touch has got some level of coding. Not just the mobile phones that we all rely on so much, but every telephone call, every electrical appliance that gets switched on by the push of a button, every TV. A typical car will have about 10 million lines of code, and some of it will control vital functions like steering, or breaks – sometimes the code goes wrong and it kills people!

A strategic opportunity to gain a competitive advantage

It is only 30 years since Tim Berners-Lee invented the Internet, but its influence has been profound, not only in our personal lives, but also in the way we do business.

Data Visualisation and business benefits

Data visualisation is the act of taking information (data) and putting it into a visual context, like a map or graph. This means that both big and small data becomes easier for our brains to understand. We get to see patterns, trends, and outliers in groups of data faster and more easily. Whether during an election or via competitor analysis, information translates into power (and for business, this usually equates to profitability).

Software Development Skills

Productivity in software development has improved even faster than the hardware - Moore's Law - double the power every 18 months.
