    My wife's company has around 70% of sales in the EU, fairly even split between B2C and B2B.

    I assume after Dec 31st all retail sales will require a CN22 and wholesale will need a CN23?

    Will a commercial invoice be required?

    Presume some details will still be announced before end of the year but it's a reasonable assumption. Plus of course customs delays you are not experiencing yet.

    We export a fair percentage of our retail sales to Europe.

    We have actually had information from HMRC in some detail as to what we will be required to do in the event of a no deal situation at the end of December - which is the assumption I am working on.

    If you register for an EORI number (if you have have not already done so), you will get the information

    You will have to report the transactions, and there is software available that will assist with that.

    Those sales will be VAT free, and customers may be liable for local sales taxes/import duties as levied from time to time by the receiving nation.

    Retail/wholesale is irrelevant. The required form is based on value.

    CN22 will soon be replaced by CN22A and CN22B. My local postie had some but there don't seem to be any details on the RM website yet.

    Depends on the value and the mode of shipment. From above I'm assuming you are using Royal Mail so as per reply above.
