Useful information on Brexit conditions

Following the UK’s departure from the European Union on 31 January 2020, and after reaching the end of the agreed transition period, new conditions for the import and export of goods took effect on 1 January 2021.

At Brildor, we value transparency above anything else. That is why we want you to be informed about any changes that this new situation may bring to your orders.

What happens after 1 January 2021?

What do I need to continue shopping at Brildor? For the shipment to be carried out in optimal conditions, it is essential that you provide us with your company’s EORI number. This number starts with GB, followed by a combination of 12 digits (i.e., GB + 12 digits), and will be requested when your package reaches customs control. Without it, importing goods into the United Kingdom is not possible, which may delay customs management and generate additional costs for the customer.

Where do I get it? To request an EORI number, we would recommend consulting with the competent body for specific advice. Find more detailed information about this process here.

What if I’m already registered with another number? In order to modify your Tax Identification Number, you must contact our administration at In the meantime, we strongly recommend that you indicate your new EORI number in the comments field located at the bottom of the payment page, whenever placing a new order.

What will happen with shipping costs? Due to new custom policies, shipping from Spain to the UK may carry extra costs related to customs clearance and taxes, which must be paid by the customer. In other words, the Incoterm is DAP.

What is DAP? It means “Delivered at Place”. DAP conditions state the responsibilities for both the seller and the buyer regarding the unloading of the goods and any customs costs, taxes or tariffs. Under this Incoterm, the seller is responsible for most of the international shipping process. However, the buyer must bear the risks associated with customs import clearance and pay any applicable taxes and tariffs once the goods have reached their destination.

Will this affect delivery deadlines? Yes, probably. We are aware that these deadlines are very important to our customers and will continue to work hard for your orders to be delivered as soon as possible. However, customs procedures can take time, resulting in longer transit lead-time for these particular shipments.
