Customs Commodity Codes and Customs Entries

Jul 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

The UK government is currently negotiating our Withdrawal Agreement for leaving the EU. Whilst hoping for a trade deal which will continue to allow us preferential access to the EU, they are preparing for the worst and issuing advice on what businesses need to do in case of a hard Brexit.

Amongst this advice, are some key elements that your shipping staff will need to understand in order to facilitate the efficient movement of your shipments (export or import) through Customs controls.

This workshop will present those key elements in a plain English format and provide clear guidance on what your business needs to do and how to do it. Delegates will leave the course with the knowledge and confidence to apply what they’ve learnt back at the office.

Suitable for those businesses who trade only with the EU, as well as for those exporting and importing to and from non-EU countries.
