Since the UK left the EU, there has been an increase in the need to control temporary movements. If you send or receive goods for demonstration, exhibition, testing or as professional equipment, you should consider this Passport for Goods. This half-day session will focus on a useful international scheme for the temporary movement of goods – the ATA Carnet Scheme. It will cover the application process and how to control ATA Carnets’ use effectively.
Both interactive and engaging, this session is suitable for people that are new to international trade, even though the course addresses potentially problematic areas. This is essential learning for companies that have, up until now, been able to move free-circulation goods around the European Union without delay.
Every export is someone else’s import, whether it is a temporary or permanent movement. This half-day course will ensure compliance with temporary movements of goods internationally and increase your understanding of customs rules and ways of avoiding unnecessary duty and VAT bills. It will provide clear guidance on finding out what information and documents are required and give you the skill to implement compliant systems within your organisation. It identifies the importance of the export entry declarations and how to read them.
