Doing Business with GB Video Series

With the practical impact of Brexit on trade with our nearest neighbour becoming more apparent, Bord Bia have worked together with BDO (with the support of Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine & The Office of the Revenue Commissioners) to develop a comprehensive set of videos - Doing Business with GB - to help Irish food, drink & horticulture companies navigate this new trading environment.

These short videos provide detailed information on what Brexit means for Irish food producers in practical terms, when importing from, or exporting to, GB.  These videos will be updated as further clarification emerges.

On 15 December 2021, the UK Government announced that the new UK customs and SPS import requirements which were due to apply to imports to Great Britain from 1 January 2022 have been postponed in respect of imports of goods from Ireland. The full UK Government statement on this can be accessed here.

This announcement means that the current arrangements for importing goods to Britain from Ireland will now continue to apply after 1 January 2022 and until the UK Government provides further information.

Please note that the videos below will be updated when further information on new timelines have been announced by the UK Government.

For information on how these changes impact Irish agri-food products please visit Gov.ie here.
