I'm showing my ignorance here, but a few times a year, I got to Belfast, from England, with a van load of equipment - we put on shows. I've only just discovered the new rules on moving goods into and out of Northern Ireland from England, and to be honest, I'm totally confused. I started to register as a trader - but it asks for things I know nothing about, or even understand. We're talking about shows - so it's a van load of PA systems, musical instruments, lights and gear like that - we do a few shows, often in Belfast, or other large towns in NI, then get back on the ferry and come home. The Gov.uk website suggests I need to register as a 'trader' to be able to take gear in and out for the shows we put on. Have I misunderstood this - what goes in, comes home again a few days or maybe a month later. I started to register to get an EORI number, but all the questions suggest it relates to export, as in goods not coming back. Basically, I take a pile of equipment, we do a few shows, and then come home again. Can anyone advise if I really need EORI numbers and stuff like this to play a few shows in Belfast or the surrounding area? On top of this each year I go there for 10 weeks to do pantomime - again, with a van full of stuff like musical instruments and office equipment, then, it gets packed up and I come home. The advice on t he .Gov website seems to not really cover what I do, and the boxes all get 'other' settings and some I don't even understand. Basically - I fill the van up with equipment, go to Belfast on the ferry from Berkenhead, then home again with the same kit. In the past, I roll up at the ferry, get off the other side, then come back again with the same stuff. I've totally missed this - and not paid any attention to the new system, assuming, totally wrongly, that GB to NI was going to be the same as before - which it clearly isn't. I often don't even have an inventory - just packing the van with everything I might need, and not even recording what it in the boxes. Then, I shovel it back in and come home. I started to fill in some forms on the .gov website, but the questions started getting more and more like I'm a transport business or exporter. I just go there, do some work, with my own equipment, then bring it all home again. I'm totally confused - I'd really appreciate some advice. I don't want to register for something that doesn't apply, and perhaps even make it worse. I fill a van up with equipment, take it on the ferry to Belfast, do some shows, and come home with the same kit. I'm totally unprepared it seems - I assumed, wrongly it appears, that GB to NI movement was unrestricted and clearly I got it very wrong.
