    Brexit Patch Release

    Preparing for Brexit

    If you are selling online into the EU then you may need to supply additional items of information with all shipments from 1st January 2021:
    1. A Trade Tariff Code for each product – also known as a Commodity Code or Harmonized System (HS) Code.
    2. The Country of Origin of each product. For rules to establish the Country of Origin see: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/rules-of-origin
    3. An EORI number for your business. For more information see: https://www.revenue.ie/en/customs-tr...ri-system.aspx If you do not have an EORI number you can apply for one here https://www.gov.uk/eori

    Depending on how you generate invoices and shipping documents etc, you may or may not need this information to be held in Sellerdeck Desktop.

    If you do need to store this information in Sellerdeck Desktop, this article explains how to add the required variables.

    Please follow the instructions for the Sellerdeck Desktop version(s) that you are currently using:

    Sellerdeck Desktop v16 & v18
    Sellerdeck Desktop 2014 (v14) and earlier

    Once you have followed the relevant instructions, you will find the new settings added to your UI. The settings will be in the same location regardless of which version you have.

    Brexit Update Downloads

    Download and install the latest versions from here.

    EORI Number

    The EORI Number will appear under ‘Site’ in the ‘Details’ tab in Settings > Site Options.

    Here you can also set a default Country of Origin and Trade Tariff Code for your goods, which you can override at Section and Product level (see below).

    Sellerdeck Desktop v16 and v18

    Download and install the latest versions from here.

    NB these upgrades will not make any changes to your current site design.

    The v16 & v18 upgrades include the new variables (above), plus new Invoice and Packing List reports for EU orders, which incorporate the additional information that will be needed from 1st January.

    To use one of these reports, select an order or block of orders; then either right-click the block or click the ‘Invoice’ or ‘Packing List’ button and select the ‘EU’ option.

    Sellerdeck Desktop 2014 (v14) and earlier

    If you have an older version of Sellerdeck Desktop and you do not want to upgrade, then you will need to add the three new variables by hand, and the new reports will not be available.

    EU Invoices and Packing Lists with One-Click Order Completion

    One-Click Order Completion (Business Settings > Order Processing) is not aware of the new Invoice and Packing List reports that were added to Sellerdeck Desktop to support Brexit.
    To enable smooth operation we advise using one of the following options:
    1. If you only receive a few orders from the EU, keep your current settings. For orders from the EU, print invoices and packing lists separately as required, and file or destroy your copies of the default invoices. The invoice number will be the same on both versions.
    2. If you receive many orders from the EU, the simplest solution for one-click completion is to print EU invoices and packing lists for all your orders. The EU versions are valid for all, but some of the information will be redundant for non-EU orders.
    To do this:
    a. Find your site folder in Windows Explorer. Generally the path will be something like:

    C:\Users\Your Name\Documents\Sellerdeck xxx\Sites\Site Name

    b. Find the file ‘Invoices.rptī and rename it ‘Invoices.Original.rpt’
    c. Copy and paste the file ‘Invoices_EU.rpt’ and rename the copy ‘Invoices.rptī

    d. Find the file ‘orders.rpt’ and rename it ‘orders.Original.rpt’
    e. Copy and paste the file ‘orders _EU.rpt’ and rename the copy ‘Invoices.rptī

    3. If you do not want to use the EU versions for all your orders, then proceed as follows:
    a. Untick ‘Print Invoice’ in Business Settings > Order Processing > One-Click Order Completion
    b. Ctrl-click groups of non-EU orders, right-click and select ‘Invoice’

    Click image for larger version  Name:	On-Click.png Views:	264 Size:	17.6 KB ID:	553422
    c. Right-click again and select ‘Complete Order’
    d. Repeat for EU-orders, selecting ‘EU Invoice’
    e. If you need weights printed on packing lists, also disable ‘Print Packing List’ in Business Settings > Order Processing > One-Click Order Completion. Print packing lists as required, in the same way and at the same time as you print invoices.
