The British plan to introduce strict border controls immediately after the final Brexit is being revised.
According to a statement on Friday, the British government does not want to burden entrepreneurs with even more problems now that they are also suffering from the corona crisis.
Companies shipping goods to the UK will now have six months to file customs declarations and pay any duties next year, it was announced.
It does not matter whether the European Union and the United Kingdom reach a Brexit deal. According to business organizations in the UK, this is “welcome news”, as many companies are not yet ready to prepare for a chaotic British departure by the end of the year.
The new border policy was announced after Britain and the EU agreed to increase the pace of their trade talks. In recent months, negotiations have reached an impasse.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, will meet by phone on 15 June to boost negotiations.
