Scenario of Brexit

We present information, which would help to prepare for any changes that may arise as a result of Brexit. DPD Lithuania is part of DPD group, Europe's largest road delivery network. We and our colleagues in the UK and mainland Europe put actions in place to manage even the worst case scenario of the ‘No Deal’ Brexit. Here are a key steps that you need to take right now to ensure that you are ready for Brexit.

      

Are You ready for any Brexit scenario?

  1. Have You assessed the impact of “no deal“ Brexit for Your business?
  2. Have You made agreement on DAP service of “Incoterms“ with Your customers?

1. If you haven't done so already, apply for an EORI number if you do not currently ship goods outside the EU.

What is EORI nuber?

EORI stands for Economic Operators Registration and Identification number. Remember that if you attempt to import from, or export to, any country outside the EU without this number, your goods will be held.

How could I get an EORI code?

EORI number is provided by Customs of the Republick of Lithuania. It can take up to 3 days for this EORI number to be live.

Contacts for EORI:

Kaunas TM +370 37 304 277, +370 37 304 271;

Customs Department +370 5 236 2312, +370 5 236 2387.

2. Start looking up HS (Harmonisation) codes for the products that you wish to export from the EU.

These HS codes are also known as Commodity Codes. These codes let Customs know what your product is, and what VAT or Duty rate to charge for the goods. If you have a number of different products to sell, you should start compiling these codes now. Information about HS codes here.

 

3. Ensure that you are capturing email and mobile numbers for all of your consignees. 

Contacts will be critical to each shipment travelling between Lithuania and UK and UK and Lithuania. The contact details will be used to communicate with your customers to make them aware of any taxes and duties payable. If we don’t receive these details in the consignment information, we will not be able to process the shipment.

4. If you're exporting from Lithuania to North Ireland or Great Britain, you'll need an SPRN Number.

What is an SPRN Number?

SPRN means Small Parcel Registration Number. SPRN is applicable for parcels, which value not exceed 135 £. It relates to exports from Lithuania to North Ireland and Great Britain.

Why do I need an SPRN Number?

If you provide us with your SPRN Number in your shipping data, your consignee will not be billed for any UK VAT. Rather, HM Customs will bill you directly. Billing will not commence until October 2019 - billing raised in October will retrospectively cover all shipments dispatched from October 31st onwards (in the event of a Hard Brexit).

How can I get my SPRN Number?
