Brexit Uncertainty Calls for Contingent Carnet: The Brexit Carnet

Boomerang carnets offers simple, low-cost solution for temporary exports to E.U.

London, UK – 18 February 2019 – Boomerang carnets, ATA Carnet specialists, announced a new ATA Carnet option for U.K. exporters shipping temporarily to the E.U. The ATA Carnet provider has developed a special “Brexit Carnet”. The Brexit Carnet is designed to provide a simple contingency plan in the event temporary import documents to the E.U. are required, post-Brexit.

The Brexit Carnet is intended for use to E.U. countries only. An exporter applies with the understanding that the Brexit Carnet may or may not be needed upon entry to an E.U. country. Special pricing applies to a Brexit Carnet since it may not be used. 

While guidelines, checklists and recommendations are widely available for exporters shipping to the E.U. post-Brexit, very few addresses what to do about temporary imports between the U.K. and E.U., post-Brexit. In the absence of clear directions from H.M. Customs regarding temporary exports, a Brexit Carnet, priced contingent on use, makes sense.

“The objective is to ensure that our customers can get their goods and equipment into the E.U., post-Brexit, without a hassle. It is prudent to get a Brexit Carnet, just in case customs requests a temporary import guarantee upon entry to the E.U. after March 29th, 2019. Due to the enormous uncertainty Brexit has created we developed a scheme for ATA Carnets that helps our customers whether they need a carnet to get into the E.U. or not.  With this in mind, and a Brexit Carnet in-hand, there should be no reason for concern.” asserted Curt E.H. Wilson, Managing Director, boomerang carnets UK.

Boomerang carnets U.K. is a partnership with the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce (LCC), a U.K. ATA Carnet issuing organization. The LCC issues ATA Carnets for U.K. exporters regardless of their location or Chamber affiliation. There is no requirement to be an LCC member to get the best ATA Carnet rates from boomerang carnets.
