Isle of Man Post Office (IOMPO) wishes to advise its customers and suppliers of its service delivery for today (Thursday).
Key information about Brexit and how it affects posting on the Isle of Man
Like all businesses, Isle of Man Post Office is preparing for Brexit.
However, whilst there continues to be UK political uncertainty over the outcome of Brexit, it is difficult to provide customers with definitive advice on the changes that may be required when sending and receiving items of mail through the post.
In the event of a 'no deal', the main change will be that all customers currently sending goods (including gifts) through the post will need to complete a CN22 or 23 customs declaration form for items sent to EU countries. The type of form you use depends upon the value of the contents of the parcel you are sending. This process is essential in order for your parcel to clear customs at its destination. Please click here for full details including downloading the forms.
It is not anticipated that there will be any immediate changes to the way you send or receive items in the post in the event of a deal including the way in which you send mail to Northern and Southern Ireland.
If the UK agrees a deal with the EU, then the UK is expected to enter into a transition period. This period is expected to remain in place until 31 December 2020, subject to a possible extension.
The transition period is designed to give everyone time to prepare for changes caused by the UK leaving the EU and the customs union at the end of 2020. As a result, the way the UK and IOM trades with the EU will remain broadly the same during the transition period.
Isle of Man Post Office’s EORI number is GB000654329000. We have worked closely with our partners and suppliers to ensure minimal disruption to our services regardless of the outcome of Brexit.
