Slovak firms exporting to the UK will need a certificate of origin from January 1, 2021. In the case of temporary export, they will have to ask for the ATA Carnet, i.e. an international customs document, which permits the tax-free and duty-free temporary export and import of non-perishable goods for up to one year.
Both documents are issued by the Slovak Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SOPK).
The reason for the change is a new regime in the mutual business relations between the EU and the UK. In terms of EU member states, the cross-border trade and the movement of goods will follow the rules that apply to the trade between the EU and non-EU countries, the TASR newswire reported.
