Update on HMRC Consultation on CIP 14 (2015) – Article 123 EC Regulation: 1186/2009
by BAR Overseas Group
In conjunction with BAR, the Overseas Group continues to lobby and make written representation to HMRC regarding the implementation of Article 123 EC Regulation: 1186/2009 and the significant impact that this will have on BAR Member companies, specifically, around customs clearance of UK imports of household effects destined to EC Member States. Despite our continued efforts, it is understood that the enforcement of this rule will be implemented on 1st November 2015; therefore, it is imperative that you consult with your clients and/or international agents now to advise them of this rule change, in order to overcome any potential issues with shipments received after this date. You will also have to consider how you will handle Non EC shipments routed via the UK for final delivery to other EC member states, which require customs clearance under the new rules, due to the inevitable financial and logistical impact that this will have on your business; this may include agreeing new commercial arrangements with your clients/agents. BAR will continue to seek further clarification from HMRC on the regulations, and have already requested more information on the required processes to pass onto Members. For advice on the clearance of non-EC shipments (via the UK) to other EC States, please contact your local Customs Office.

Freight Rates increase from 1st March 2014
by BAR Overseas Group
Every year the overseas shipping lines independently review their rates and adjust them in accordance with market conditions. Over the last few years there has been very little change in ocean freight rates. This year has seen an increase on major routes and these became effective on 1 March 2014. This increase applies to all commodities and is not limited to household furniture. Your chosen overseas removal company will be able to advise you of any impact this may have on recent pricing and you should contact them directly. The BAR is not involved in pricing, and only offers this information as confirmation of a general price increase by overseas shipping lines.
