Customs Declarations: GVMS for Great Britain & Northern Ireland Explained

The UK's pre-lodgement customs declarations system allows businesses to get prior approval to move goods into and out of the country. Find out how it works

The pre-lodgement model GVMS has been announced for entry into operation on 1 January 2021 after the UK has left the EU's Customs Union and will operate and control its own borders. The border in the English Channel and the Irish Sea now requires additional "paperwork" to be filed in various computer systems to set timeframes to enable effective customs controls. Trading with Great Britain and Northern Ireland will become a "festival of data exchanges" (positive spin). This specialist webinar is dedicated to explaining how the system will work.  CONTENT WE COVER 1. What is GVMS and why does it matter? 2. Actors responsible for lodging into GVMS 3.
