From 1st January 2021, the Northern Ireland Protocol will come into effect and as a result there will be changes to the way goods move between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. 

To help businesses and traders of all sizes to navigate these changes, UK Government has launched the Trader Support Service. This will:

  • Provide a free end-to-end support package to manage import and safety and security declarations on behalf of traders
  • Educate businesses on what the Northern Ireland Protocol means for them, and the steps they need to take to comply with it. This includes online training sessions and webinars happening now.
  • Help to complete relevant declaration forms for all businesses moving goods into Northern Ireland under new processes in the Northern Ireland Protocol that start from 1 January 2021.
