No deal Brexit: No tariffs for Irish goods going to NI

Syndicate Post image

The details are contained in a new no deal Brexit plan published by the government.

But Britain would slash tariffs elsewhere on the vast majority of goods entering the country.

But if firms can indeed just legally export Irish goods tariff-free to GB via NI, then no such smuggling concerns apply. This would not involve any infrastructure or checks at the border including in Northern Ireland.

They have been created to ensure the politically sensitive border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland remains as porous as possible.

Other food products such as beef and poultry will face a reduced rate compared with the rest of the world, but prices would still be expected to rise for shoppers.

Prime Minister Theresa May suffered a second, heavy parliamentary defeat on the withdrawal deal she struck with the bloc on Tuesday, leaving open the possibility of an abrupt, economically damaging Brexit without a transition arrangement.

On the Irish border, the British government said it would not introduce any new checks or controls on goods moving from the Irish Republic to the British province of Northern Ireland in the event of a no-deal Brexit, stressing the plan was temporary and unilateral.

Britain said on Wednesday it would eliminate import tariffs on a wide range of goods and avoid a so-called hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Zero tariffs would be applied to items such as footwear, aluminium and steel, machinery, paper and wood products, and weapons and ammunition.

But they said these were the only steps that could be taken to deliver on the Government's commitment to avoiding a hard border in the case of no deal.

Small businesses trading across the border will be able to report Value-Added Tax online without any new processes at the border. "That's why you've seen the reaction today from British business, from British farmers, Northern Ireland business, Northern Ireland farmers very concerned about what the United Kingdom is proposing and the impact that it's going to have on their economy".

To protect human, animal, and plant health, animals and animal products from countries outside the EU would need to enter Northern Ireland through a designated entry point, regulated plant material from outside the EU and high risk EU plant material will require certification and pre-notification before arriving in the UK.

Goods crossing the border from Ireland into Northern Ireland would not be covered by the new import tariff regime.

Secretary of State Karen Bradley said they would be "temporary" and recognise "the unique circumstances of Northern Ireland".

The decision to refrain from checks at the Irish border would be temporary while longer term solutions were negotiated.
