It makes no difference. It’s still done manually and the systems are still inputted with dates and badge codes.

I work in imports so I know it’s not just as simple as a computer saying no on the 1st.
There will be literally tons of imports in bonded warehouses which are not cleared yet and they won’t suddenly become liable for duty after midnight.

I think the brexit supporters are going to melt away from this topic, and the blame / pivot has started in the press so they will pick those lines up after.

Maybe your correct, i'm only basing this on the systems and ecom tools my company uses. Metapack did a switch over early this week which impacted some of our exports. Our systems wouldnt be able to process this after midnight tonight, but UPS may be different.

That's shocking that they won't contribute for an existing employee

Exports are a little trickier paperwork wise. To be honest nobody really knows yet all the finer details.

I can see the CHIEF system causing all sorts of problems next eeek.
All my imports were Swiss and Norwegian last week. Now it’s the whole of Europe and Turkey and we still don’t know if it’s all duty free.
Some things have VAT relief too.

I can’t see how a £10000 import can be VAT and duty free but we have to pay for a £150 coat. It’s madness and will be crazy for months. Everyone is going to defer the duties for six months anyway until they know the rules.

Voted to remain, but completely disagree with this remain(ers) = good, leave(rs) = bad rhetoric, which is exhibited throughout politics, particularly from the left. I’ve been massively impacted by the fallout of this, but it was a far from ideal/utopian ‘partnership’ and from what I’ve read, seems like we’ve got a pretty decent deal. The fact that a few idiots (myself included) may end up paying a few quid on importing clothes is hardly a significant part of this process.

The deal is worse than what we had when we were in the EU. Tell me what's better? Not even looking at the fact that we have spent more on "getting Brexit done" than we gave to the EU

that is a fair comment and i am fully aware i am being deliberately provocative. there are very valid arguments on both sides for remaining/leaving. however, it is shocking to observe the number of people who voted leave but can't actually put forward a valid reason for doing so (e.g rickrude). the majority of the public have been completely spun by right wing propaganda, which is extremely unfortunate

of course, but also a lot with very valid arguments.
