Attention!

The Withdrawal Agreement implementation period will be in force until the end of 2020. During the 11 month-long implementation period, which is until the end of this year, the laws of the European Union will prevail. There will be no practical impact on the citizens of Great Britain and Latvia, nor on entrepreneurs or the terms of parcel delivery.

Are you prepared for all possible “Brexit” scenarios?

  1. Have you evaluated the impact of Brexit on your business?
  2. Have you agreed on the use of DAP Incoterms with your clients?

1. If you haven't done so yet and haven't exported goods outside of the EU yet, apply for an EORI number.

To export goods outside the EU, entrepreneurs must register an EORI number. An EORI number (Economic Operators Registration and Identification number) is a unique identification number that the customs authorities grant to the entrepreneur or person to register them within the customs territory of the European Union.

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

HS codes are also known as Commodity Codes. These codes allow customs to know exactly what your product is and what VAT or tax rate must be collected for the goods. If you sell many different products, you must start summarising these codes right away. You can find more information on HS codes here.

3. Make sure that you have saved all the phone numbers and e-mail addresses of all of your clients.

Contact information will be crucial for every delivery that travels from Latvia to Great Britain and vice versa. The contact information will be used for contacting the client, so they are informed of the payments of all taxes and duties. If this information isn't specified we won't be able to process the parcels in the packing list printing program.

4. When exporting parcels to Great Britain you will require an SPRN number.

What is an SPRN number?

An SPRN number is a small parcel registration number (also known as the HMRC VAT payer code). SPRN’s are applicable to parcels that have a value that does not exceed 135 £. This concerns exports from Latvia to Northern Ireland and Great Britain.

Why do I need an SPRN number?

If you state your SPRN number in the shipping data, the parcel will be delivered to the recipient without collecting VAT. Instead, the HM Customs will bill you directly. Bills for the payment of VAT will only be made out for parcels that are delivered to Great Britain in case an agreement has not been reached.

How can I get my SPRN number?

An SPRN is a mandatory requirement for all parcels that are transported from Latvia to Northern Ireland and Great Britain. Get your SPRN number here.
