BCC Accredited Import Procedures Training

Course Overview

Are you currently buying goods/components from overseas markets?  Are these EU or third country transactions?  Do you understand the difference?

Whether the government reaches a deal with the EU during the transition period, or we exit with no deal, you need to understand how your ‘arrivals’ from the EU will become imports and the associated customs procedures that will apply.  Furthermore, you will need to determine the cost, process and resource implications for your business.

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.

If you are new to import, or concerned about the potential implications for your business when we Brexit, then join us for this training focussing on the import process.  In an interactive environment, we will explore the key issues you need to consider, along with the special procedures and authorisations which can facilitate the import process.
