On the 1st of January 2021 the UK exited the Brexit transition period and left the EU Customs Union and Single Market. For companies importing or exporting goods on the Island of Ireland this meant the introduction of a new set of rules for business to contend with in order to get goods across border. The first 8 months have been a baptism of fire for many business trading goods with and through the UK with many experiencing difficulties.
Our sessions will speak to some of the updates there have been since the beginning of the year and the common mistakes and errors for business to watch out for. Building on the learnings this year we aim to equip you with the fundamental knowledge to navigate the new customs rules and support you to explore ways to ensure continuity of your and your partners supply chains whilst avoiding unnecessary costs, disruption and to do so compliantly.
For importing and exporting business we also offer an individual company or participant workshop with our experts to explore your supply chain and to support you to ensure you are set up from a customs perspective to trade with customers and suppliers efficiently.
For business in the logistics or intermediary space we can support you to understand your responsibilities including if you provide customs clearance to customers.
This course is essential for business importing and exporting with the UK and/or submitting customs declarations.
