Horse events and equestrian sports will soon be allowed to resume.
With Brexit, the rules for transporting horses or ponies between the European Union and Great Britain have changed.
ASD Group is on the spot to welcome you, but everything is prepared before your arrival to ensure your horses spend the least time possible in transit.
Let us deal with everything for you, so you can get maximum benefit from your passion.
From 1 January 2021, the physical border between the United Kingdom and the European Union was re-established.
From now on, every movement between the European Union and the United Kingdom is subject to customs formalities.
In addition to these customs procedures, live animals or products of animal origin are subject to a veterinary check at the first point of entry into European Union territory.
Equines, whether horses or ponies, are affected by these measures. This includes those entering European Union territory for a temporary period, i.e. to take part in a horse show or race, for example.
There are no exceptions. Even taking part in an equestrian event for a few hours requires certain formalities to be completed.
Depending on the purchaser’s status and geographical situation, the customs formalities ensure that the taxes and VAT are paid.
Administration of the VAT will be different depending on the importer’s geographical situation and status. ASD Group as a RDE (Registered Customs Representative) and in conjunction with its taxation services will support you in completing all these formalities and fulfilling your obligations.
This simplifies customs formalities, but the customs inspection and SIVEP control need to be carried out.
One ATA carnet per transit:
Because live animals are not objects and because the stress of travelling is a test in itself, our sole focus is that they spend the least amount of time possible at the checks and import site.
So that your horses spend as little time as possible in the transition stables.
Every attempt is made to anticipate your arrival.
ASD Group tools were designed so that we can work in collaboration with you in order to facilitate your transit.
The whole team at ASD Group is working together for your animals.
