From January 1st 2021 the UK is leaving the EU and therefore there will be new rules coming into effect for the import and export of goods to and from the UK.

Changes to Platinum are being implemented in stages. Please see Preparing for Brexit with Platinum for more information on the stages of release.

Following the completion of Stage 2, a Platinum update will add a new customer attribute to your Platinum system.

You will need to allocate the 'Export Customer' attribute to the relevant customers. This controls whether Commodity details will be printed on the documents listed here.
