Brexit Statement

Since our last statement at the beginning of November, we, at Protective Packaging Ltd have continued to put in place the infrastructure required to continue supply into the EU and Northern Ireland with as minimal disruption as possible.

Due to the current unresolved “deal or no deal” negotiations between the UK and the EU at a Political level and our upcoming annual shutdown starting from 24th December until the 4th January, we feel that now is the appropriate time to communicate further on this topic. Please be aware that our proposed standard Incoterm for all deliveries from the beginning of 2021 will be DAP – “delivered at place”. If you have any queries or would like to discuss this further, please contact your Account Manager. Please note that if you currently collect your order EXW “ex-works”, you can continue to use this term or we can also look at using FCA “free carrier”, if this would be your preference.

Protective Packaging currently export into the majority of EU Countries. Due to the changes that Brexit will bring regarding VAT treatment on imports and the added complications linked to needing fiscal representation and the reclamation of VAT in each of those Countries as a UK based business, we feel that this should be dealt with by you, our customer. This should be a relatively straightforward process as you will already be registered for VAT and it will be the same process used with other non-EU countries.

If you have not already done so, we appreciate if you could return your EORI number and contact details for arranging shipments as requested with our previously issued statement to allow us to continue to get our database up to date.

We have a number of orders scheduled for dispatch from the first week in January so we may also be in touch with you separately to discuss and confirm any further details we may require to ship these orders without delay in the New Year.
