Now that the UK is NOT in the EU anymore loads of Tourists being turned around and sent back to the UK when they land in EU countries as Holidaymaking is not essential travel .The airlines are letting them board the planes as they are not responsible for other Governments policies .Also read Truck Drivers must pass a covid test within 72 hours of driving from UK to the EU so a driver leaving Britain to Go to Italy must do the round trip in 3 days or he has to take another test plenty of room there for cuntology by customs .

https://www.independent.ie/news/online-shoppers-using-an-post-virtual-address-service-to-be-hit-with-two-new-charges-39933767.html


CUSTOMERS that use An Post’s virtual address service to buy goods from the UK are to be hit with a two new charges.

Brexit means there will be an administration fee of €3.50 applied to all items, in addition to a service fee of €6.50 for using AddressPal.

The service provides customers with a virtual UK address to allow them to avail of reduced or free delivery charges that many UK retailers offer to UK residents.

Rivals ParcelMotel and Parcel Wizard have already suspended their virtual address services from the UK to Ireland.

The two new charges being imposed by An Post’s AddressPal mean an additional cost of €10 for using the service.

And online shoppers who buy from websites outside of the EU, which now includes Britain, will see their purchases subject to Vat (value added tax) and other customs changes if they cost more than €22.

These charges are likely collected by the online retailer when buying the goods, if they have not been paid.

Asked why it was imposing a total of €10 in new charges, An Post said the Brexit and associated customs changes mean far more handling and administration on every item.

“We’re trying to keep the service going where other providers have ceased their UK address facilities,” a spokesperson said.

The post office company said existing AddressPal UK customers must register a home delivery address on their account for the purpose of paying any charges due.

Some customers currently only have a local post office listed as their delivery address.


A post office delivery address can no longer be used as the customer’s registered address, An Post said.

An Post said it will monitor the impact of new changes on the service over the coming months.

DPD has said it was closing its Parcel Wizard virtual address service.

“Due to Brexit constraints from January 1 2021, all items coming from the UK will be subject to customs rules which may incur duty and possible Vat charges and this will lead to additional administrations costs. Therefore, it will be no longer viable to offer this service post Brexit.”

Parcel Motel suspended its UK virtual address service on December 28 last due to the impact of Brexit.

Parcel Motel had offered online shoppers in the Republic a way to circumvent international shipping restrictions and added costs by allowing them to pay for the use of its virtual address.

This saw packages first shipped to the company’s depot in Newtownabbey in Co Antrim, before being distributed around the country.

FRENCH KICKING FUCK OUT OF THE BRITS  they just cant forget Waterloo ...French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced on Thursday that all public venues currently closed would remain so until at least 20 January. He also said the border with Britain will remain closed until further notice in a bid to combat the new strain of Covid-19.

Has the bread gone up yet?

I had a little giggle to myself as I walked passed empty shelves where the toilet roll and kitchen roll used to be in Lidl the day before yesterday... and briefly considered setting up a car boot stall in the car park given Mrs. Catcher's foresight in cornering the world market in all things tissue back in March!

SO THAT'S IT !

After all these years of Brexit talks horseshite, the final outcome is that the M&S 'Percy Pig' sweets are subject to tariff's and postal deliveries from the UK will cost a small few quid more and might be delayed by a few days !

Hardly the 'Armageddon' that was preached about on here !!

Any news on the Sliced Pan ?

Ken most jobs are closed but here is an example .PFyser or some other Tablet maker use an ingredient from Britain add it to the recipe now the State of Origin rule comes into play those tablets because the have British ingredients now have to be taxed if its contains animal extract like Gellitine for the outer capsules they now need an export licence and a VETS cert as they contain animal products .Brexit isint a week old yet and already supermarket shelves are empty wait till the warehouses run short .No deal yet on Financial services lets see how that works out for lads who have a pension with the Irish branch of a British Pension Fund when they go to draw it down ,will the Brits tax it as well as the Irish ?All we are seeing is the Daily Mirrors version of Brexit  .Still recon when Andy Capp ,Flo and the Tracksuited Kids realize Brexit wont open the old car plants or mines or create new jobs that pay more than minimum wage the shit will hit the fan .Now that America has shown attacking the Dail gets you on telly dont rule out something similar happening in Britain .

London lost a chunk of European stock trading this week. What will it lose next?

Quote
When the UK’s Brexit transition agreement with the EU expired this week, some €6 billion ($7 billion) of daily trading in EU stocks left London overnight for markets across the Channel. The question is whether this was a one-time hit or a sign that even bigger chunks of the financial sector will disappear.

Because financial services were largely left out of the Brexit agreement between London and Brussels, exchange operators in the UK can no longer provide trading in EU-listed stocks to European customers from Britain. Companies in the UK capital like London Stock Exchange Group, Cboe, and Aquis Exchange activated their venues for EU-shares on the Continent, where nearly all trading in EU stocks now takes place.

It’s easy to overstate what has happened so far, which is mainly a change in legal designation. UK-based exchange operators have units in places like Paris and Amsterdam for this type of business, but the electronic buying and selling technically still happens in a data center in the UK. (As does the trading for Pan-European exchange Euronext.) Brits lost a dab of tax revenue and some pride, but at this point the country’s financial district is well intact.

“Banks and brokers did a lot of work to make sure they can continue trading as normal,” said Anish Puaar, an analyst at Rosenblatt Securities in London. “Instead of Cboe London it’s Cboe Amsterdam. That’s about it.”

Finance executives, however, are concerned it could be just the beginning.
