The current position is this:
Britain will remain in a transition agreement with the EU member states up until the end of 2020. This means that we can continue to ship parcels into the EU without consideration of customs documentation, inspection and charge up until that date.
What does the future hold?
This is a rather more tricky question to answer as it completely depends on the shape that any trade agreement with the EU takes but we've been considering, discussing and working on a variety of options to try to be prepared, insofar as that is practical, for a range of outcomes.
It is entirely possible, ignoring the political rhetoric, that the current transition agreement will be extended during 2020 once the outline of an agreement and the negotiation process has proceeded rather further than it currently has and we will be reviewing and revising our options as this occurs.
Although we have received assurances that our preferred carriers and the Government are committed to being ready irrespective of the shape of any agreement with the EU27 we are unconvinced that the necessary additional infrastructure, trained staff and systems required under some of the harshest options the UK Government imposes on us can be catered for by the end of 2020 and we would urge that the UK and EU Governments mutually consider extending the transition agreement at that point rather than facing us with a cliff edge.
Whilst we'd rather not have been facing this situation, we at Games Lore Ltd are committed to ensuring that there is as little disruption as possible to our customers as is feasible, however it is inevitable that at certain times, events outside our control may cause delays and we would ask for patience during these times whilst we work to resolve those.
