As Importers, we are encouraged to trade with countries which have preferential trading agreements with us. The recent ‘Brexit’ deal is precisely one of these – but with all the member nations of the EU in one go. This is in the pricing interests of our UK customers.

As exporters, this deal allows many of our goods into EU Member states at zero, or vastly reduced tariff rates – again in the interests of our customers in those states.

For both these exercises, we need to provide specialised paperwork with our goods so that Customs on each side of the border can verify that the reduced rates of tariff are justified.

The course explores the current Rules of Origin agreed within the deal, how to establish where goods originate "officially", and our company’s internal factors 

Workshop programme in detail:

  • What are the Rules of Origin applicable to the European TCA
