Brexit Uncertainty Calls for Contingent Carnet for T.V. and Film Producers:
The Brexit Carnet

Boomerang carnets offers a simple solution for productions traveling to the E.U.

London, UK – 25 February 2019 – Boomerang carnets, ATA Carnet specialists, announced a new ATA Carnet option for U.K. producers shooting in the E.U. The ATA Carnet provider has developed a special “Brexit Carnet”. The Brexit Carnet is designed to provide a simple contingency plan if temporary import documents to the E.U. are required, post-Brexit.

The Brexit Carnet is intended for use to E.U. countries only. A production company 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 other exporters shipping to the E.U. post-Brexit, very few address production equipment shipped or hand-carried between the U.K. and E.U., post-Brexit. In the absence of clear directions from H.M. Customs regarding these international productions, a Brexit Carnet, priced contingent on use, makes sense.

Our objective is to ensure that production company, broadcast, entertainment, sports and camera crew customers can get their equipment into the E.U., post-Brexit, without a hassle. It is prudent to get a Brexit Carnet, in the event customs requests a temporary import guarantee upon entry to the E.U. after March 29th, 2019. Due to the enormous uncertainty Brexit has created, a scheme for ATA Carnets can help. 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.
