➾ You'll need to get an EU EORI number if you're exporting to your own business within the EU. You can get one from the customs authority in any EU country.
2. Decide who will make the export declarations
You can hire someone to deal with customs for you, or you can do it yourself.
And decide if you want to export your goods using transit

3. Check the rate of tax and duty for your goods
Your importer will need to pay tax and duty on your goods after Brexit. This will depend on the classification of the goods.
4. Check what you need to do for the type of goods you export
There might be other things you need to do, depending on what you're exporting.
