    Mr MacAskill claims Ireland took action ahead of Brexit to increase ferry capacity and establish new routes while Scotland did nothing.

    Claims? Ireland absolutely did set up several new ferry routes, to bypass the "land bridge" of the UK and the anticipated Brexit chaos, which indeed happened. Scotland did indeed not set up any ferry routes.

    To think we 'negotiated' this trade obstacle. A sample of some recent coms for businesses warning us of hard times ahead for anyone insisting on doing business with their EU neighbours.

    Commercial goods that you bring into the country yourself to sell or use for your business count as Merchandise in Baggage. This means that when you’re travelling in and out of the country on business, equipment, samples or products that you carry with you are classed as goods, and customs rules apply.
    You need to complete a simplified online declaration when entering or leaving Great Britain if you are carrying any goods to sell or use by a business with a value not exceeding £1,500, not weighing more than 1,000kgs and not classed as excise or restricted goods. Restricted goods can include goods such as products of animal origin, plants and certain types of fruit and vegetables. Further detail on which goods are classed as restricted can be found on GOV‌‌.UK by searching 'restricted and controlled goods'.
    You can complete the declaration at gov‌‌.uk/hmrc‌‌/goods-‌‌in-baggage within five days of arriving in or leaving Great Britain, or you can make an oral declaration to a Border Force officer by going to the 'goods to declare' channel (red channel) or red phone point when going through customs, if such facilities exist.
    If you are carrying goods exceeding £1,500 in value, weighing more than 1,000kgs or which are excise or restricted goods, you or your customs agent must submit a full customs declaration electronically using either the Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight system (CHIEF) or the Customs Declaration Service (CDS).
    For moving commercial goods in your accompanied baggage from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, you need to make a declaration through the Trader Support Service, which is provided by HMRC free to use, regardless of the value or nature of goods.
    For movements between Northern Ireland and the EU, there are no changes to the rules and goods can continue to move without a customs declaration.

    UKGov statement about NI's EUUK status at end cheered me up! That's the kind of deal we wanted here.

    The words "rats" and "sinking ship" spring to mind.

    The former chancellor George Osborne’s family wallpaper business has said that Brexit added £400,000 to its costs, as the company’s sales slid more than 16% during the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Osborne & Little, which is controlled by Osborne’s father, Sir Peter Osborne, said the UK’s exit from the EU had “an immediate adverse effect on profits” from January 2021, with unforeseen costs such as increased shipping payments and taxes on EU goods imported to the UK before being exported back to Europe.

    If he really cares about costs being dumped on working families by elite policymakers, perhaps I could draw his attention to Brexit. Its price tag, according to one calculation, will by 2050 be 20 times greater than the cost of net zero. Yes, that Brexit, which Baker, as the former chairman of the European Research Group, was so determined to take all the way.

    Ideas include fracking to help solve Britain’s energy crisis, while super powered vacuum cleaners and electric bikes are popular - as is support for the white van man’s preferred vehicle.

    Here's some typical stuff for us to fill in. Bit more complex than a PartyGate questionnaire.

    Make a mistake on a commodity code and goods will be held.


    A clear invoice containing all of the below information ( for reference we cannot ship anything without an invoice )
    ++

    EX works / FCA Invoice requirements to ship

    A Registered UK Entity sending the invoice for shipment headed by the Full UK company’s address
    Clear in full UK shippers address + Vat + GB EORI ( normally the shippers vat with 3-4 0’s after it )
    Full Receivers address + Vat + Eori
    Clear payment terms and Incoterms listed either EX WORKS / DAP/ FCA - We do not arrange any DDP shipments
    Clear exact amount of product e.g 1500 cans ETC
    Clear product descriptions of the consignment E.g 1 pallet ( goods included ) at 120x100x80 50KG net 95KG Gross
    Clear HS/Commodity codes listed ( ensuring that they are using the 2022 codes if they have changed – these can be found on the HMRC websites we are not permitted to tell you what codes to use )
    If the shipment is return goods then a CPC code made be applicable the Shipper should be aware if this is applicable and can also find these on HMRC websites – again we are not permitted to inform you what codes are correct or what codes to use
    Currency’s listed on the invoice with a clear price of the products per item ETC
    The Origin of the goods - if the goods are of UK origin then an accompanying statement of UK preferential origin must also be included on the invoice

    If the shipment is DAP then the following must also be included
    The Full Town in Germany must be included on the invoice next to the Incoterms

    Must be worded correctly or will be refused on the statement of uk preferential origin
    (Period: from 01/01/2020 to 25/12/2023
    The exporter of the products covered by this document ( UK EORI ) declares that,
    except where otherwise clearly indicated, these products are of (country) preferential origin.
