UK Internal market scheme to replace UK trader scheme from end of month.
EARLIER this year, the UK Government and the EU agreed the Windsor Framework.
The agreement establishes a new scheme, the UK Internal Market Scheme (UKIMS), for the movement of ‘not at risk’ goods into Northern Ireland. This scheme will replace the UK Trader Scheme (UKTS) from September 30th, 2023.
As that date is fast approaching, all eligible businesses that move goods into Northern Ireland are being advised to complete their application for the UK Internal Market Scheme. The UK Government will then endeavour to process applications as quickly as possible.
