The United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union (EU) on 1 February 2020 and left the EU Customs Union on 1 January 2021, so Hungarian traders, businesses and citizens may also experience significant changes due to Brexit, he points out in his statement. the National Tax and Customs Administration (NAV).
The departure of the United Kingdom from the EU also means that it will be considered a “third country”, ie a non-EU country, from 1 January 2021. The exception to this is Northern Ireland, where the EU’s customs, VAT and statistical legislation shall continue to apply.
As a result, in the case of Great Britain (ENGLAND, SCOTLAND, WALES), THE RULES OF EXIT AND ENTRY, AS WELL AS PRODUCTS ORIGINATING IN OR FROM THE UNITED KINGDOM, HAVE BEEN CHANGED.
For customs administration, an EORI number must be requested from the National Tax and Customs Administration (NAV), which can be done in person or through representation. Products arriving in Hungary from outside the EU – in this case from Great Britain – and departing from Hungary to Great Britain must submit a customs declaration, as this is a condition for import and export from January 2021.
NAV CONDUCTS THE CUSTOMS PROCEDURE ON THE BASIS OF THE PRODUCT DECLARATION SUBMITTED.
It is good for individuals to know that if they order goods from Britain or import goods from there on their journey, from January 2021 it will be considered as an import from outside the EU. It is therefore advisable to find out from the customer information available on the NAV website before ordering or traveling. If someone does not want to manage their customs themselves, they can also entrust a customs representative instead.
