Customs between GB (not including NI) to EU27 – General:

There are now less than two months left to make sure you’re ready for new rules around moving goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland that take effect from 1 January 2021.

Your firm will  need an XI EORI number (a unique ID code used to track and register customs information within the EU) to continue moving those goods between GB and NI.
