Customs formalities to send a parcel to England

As England is no longer part of the European Union, you will now face stricter regulations when shipping to the UK. Only Northern Ireland is exempt from the customs requirements of the rest of the UK. Northern Ireland benefits from the same customs regulations as the rest of the European Union. 

From now on, whether you are shipping from a country that is part of the European Union or not, you will have to complete the same administrative procedures as when shipping internationally. 

You are a professional 

As a professional, if you are shipping to England, you will have to make sure that you are in line with the UK customs regulations. Therefore you will have to :

The history of the Royal Mail began in 1516 with the creation of the "Master of the Posts" by King Henry VIII. Couriers were paid to carry government messages and in 1635 the subjects of the kingdom were allowed to use the postal system (to bring resources to the British Parliament). The Royal Mail evolved into a single pricing system for all mail within the Kingdom (Great Britain, Ireland) by 1840.

Queen Victoria (1837 - 1901) was the first to appear on what is generally considered to be the first postage stamp in history (May 1840), the Pennyblack, leaving the sender responsible for the postage of his mail.

After 499 of public status, the Royal Mail became in 2015 a totally private company after the sale of the last shares held by the British state (it still held 38% since 2013). The now private company will nevertheless maintain the principle of universal mail delivery until 2021.
