Opera 3 Update – Brexit Fast Approaching
From 1st January 2021 the process for importing and exporting goods will change. This will affect any business that moves goods between the UK and the EU. There are many changes being added to Opera 3 which you need to make sure you have set up in readiness for the deadline. Things you need to think about:
- Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number is a unique ID reference used across the EU. HMRC’s guidance for a ‘no deal’ Brexit advises that UK businesses trading goods within the EU will be required to register for a UK EORI number and a NI EORI number, if required. It’s free to register at www.gov.uk/eori. Opera 3 Company Profiles have been enhanced to include the EORI field for businesses to record their EORI number. This means that this information can then be included on various reports and documentation (including delivery notes and invoices). Please let us know if you would like your design templates changing in good time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Pegasus Opera 3 EC VAT Module is needed for the purpose of producing the current EU specific reports (ESL and SD) and storing the EORI numbers for customers and for each country you trade with.
- Customs Declarations for Import/ Exports is not currently catered for in Opera 3 for the customer declarations forms and at this time there is not plans to introduce this functionality, although we are working with third parties for integrations.
