Key information about Brexit and how it affects posting on the Isle of Man
Following the UK exit from the European Union on 31 January 2020, the UK is in a transition period which will remain in place until 31 December 2020. During this time, the UK will remain in the single market and customs union, and there will be no change to the sending and receiving of items of mail through the post.
During the transition period the UK Government will attempt to negotiate a trade deal, the consequences of which will be considered and advice will be issued in due course. In the event that a trade deal is not reached before the end of the transition period, and there is no extension, then the main change will be that all customers 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 will depend upon the value of the contents of the parcel you are sending. This process will be essential in order for your parcel to clear customs at its destination.

It is not anticipated that any of our ancillary services will be affected by our departure from the EU, however, there will be changes to postal pricing for EU destinations as of 1st January 2021 to reflect any changes to VAT applicability.
