BREXIT: On 30 December 2020, 8.00 CET - UK will be excluded from ECS messaging platform

With regard to BREXIT, we would like to inform you that the United Kingdom (UK) has informed DG TAXUD in the European Commission that they have a new date (30 December 2020 8.00 CET) no which UK will be excluded from the ECS messaging platform. In this regard, we note that after 30 December 2020 it will not be possible to exchange messages between the UK and the EU Member States, respectively it will not be possible to complete the movements electronically in the National Export system, in the cases when the export movement started before 31/12/2020, when the export Custom Bureau is in Bulgaria, and ended after that date in the Custom Bureau on leaving the UK (and vice versa). This circumstance will lead to a delay in confirming the departure of the goods, as well as a possible need to provide alternative evidence of departure, therefore, it is advisable to avoid starting export operations immediately before this date with the Customs Office of Exit in UK.
