Sending parcels after the transition period
At the moment, if you send goods or gifts to another country in the EU they don’t need to go through customs. After the Brexit ‘transition period’ ends on 31st December 2020, the EU may treat exports from the UK as it does from non-EU countries today.
For all Parcelforce Worldwide services a CP72 Customs Declaration Form may need to be fully completed, written legibly in English, and affixed to your parcel.
If you are sending an item via an online channel (e.g. Parcelforce.com) you may also be required to supply electronic customs content data. This contains information on the sender, recipient and contents of the parcel and helps aid customs clearance.
Please note: VAT, duties and fees may also be applicable. Recipients will may need to pay these before they can receive the parcel. These charges will depend on the country you’re sending to, the value of the item you’re sending and whether it is a gift or commercial goods.
We will provide more information in due course. In the meantime, please keep up to date with the Government's advice on leaving the EU here
