Labelling & other key considerations for Food & Drink Exports

We have an increasing number of clients who are approaching us regarding food and drink labelling post Brexit. If you are exporting food or drink products from the UK into the EU and you do not have a taxable presence within the EU, then you may be failing to meet the EU Food Business Operator (FBO) regulations. From 01 January 2021 you must meet the current EU rules as food will now be treated as entering into the EU.

If you think this may impact your business, please let us know as soon as possible and we can discuss how your supply chain, corporate structure or labelling may need to change to meet the EU regulations. Please contact your usual Johnston Carmichael adviser now, to get this started.

Supply chain and VAT & Indirect Taxes
