If you move goods in or out of Northern Ireland the Trader Support Service will guide you through any changes due to the implementation of the Northern Ireland Protocol.
The Northern Ireland Protocol was introduced on 1 January 2021.
Changes have been made to the way goods move in and out of Northern Ireland. If you have not already prepared for these changes, you may not be able to move your goods.
The Trader Support Service can help your business adapt to the changes. The service is free to use and:
- offers comprehensive education, training and advice about the changes to the way your goods move under the Northern Ireland Protocol
- can complete customs and safety and security declarations on your behalf where these are required for movements between Great Britain and Northern Ireland so you do not have to access HMRC systems directly
You can use the Trader Support Service if you:
- are moving the goods yourself
- act on behalf of someone if for example you are a haulier
If you’re not already prepared for these changes, we encourage you to sign up now using the Trader Support Service website.
HMRC has chosen the Trader Support Service to provide this service.
