This is an interactive training workshop which runs from 9 am to 4.30 pm. All too often companies are unaware of the array of customs notices and procedures that apply to their business transactions – whether importing or exporting. Unless staff receive adequate training, their first encounter with officialdom is often goods delayed in transit or a customs audit. The cost of non-compliance can be high – whether this be demurrage charges at port, civil penalties or the repayment of understated duties.

 

Delegates will learn about customs procedures in international trade and how to ensure that import and export movements are as efficient as possible. It will also address the implications of Brexit.
