Brexit: Register an interest in the Trader Support Service

News article

Find out how you can register an interest in the Trader Support Service and keep up to date with other changes due to the implementation of the Northern Ireland Protocol

At the end of the transition period when the Northern Ireland Protocol comes into force there will be changes to the way goods move between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

If your business is impacted by these changes, you may want to consider the Trader Support Service. It can help you if you:

  • move goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland, or bring goods into Northern Ireland from outside the UK
  • act on behalf of someone to move goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland, or bring goods into Northern Ireland from outside the UK
  • are based in Northern Ireland and receive goods from outside of Northern Ireland
  • send parcels between Great Britain and Northern Ireland, or bring parcels into Northern Ireland from outside the UK, using Royal Mail or an express operator

The Trader Support Service will be free to use and will guide you through any changes to the way goods move between Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and into Northern Ireland from outside the UK. You can also use it to get declarations completed on your behalf.

Further information is available for UK businesses moving goods into, out of, or through Northern Ireland.
