So a Brexit deal has been agreed. I - like a lot of others - have no idea what this will mean for the Bloodstock Industry. Seeing an article on the Racing Post site Julian Richmond Watson, chair of the/ Thoroughbred Industries Brexit Steering Group, said on Thursday that news of the deal was “very welcome”,He continued “Even though we now have an agreement in principle between the UK and EU we want to ensure participants are aware that the process of moving horses will change significantly from the end of the transition period. It will be more complex administratively and is likely to be more expensive. The Brexit steering group emphasised that limiting travel in the opening weeks of January remained the best option. It said: “It remains the advice of the group not to try and move horses for at least the first two weeks of January unless absolutely necessary. This will allow time for agreements to be ratified and the new processes to be communicated to relevant officials here and in the EU.” The article also stated Those travelling horses to the EU from the end of next week will need to prepare themselves for a number of changes to paperwork, including paying VAT and duty on horses and having additional proof animals are free of infection and have been based in the UK for at least 40 days prior to travelling. Now that needs some explaining please....... Reply
