What is this virtual seminar about?
This topical session reviews what the impact is on business of the UK’s departure from the Single Market and Customs Union at the end of 2020. The UK is now a 3rd country to the EU27 members and customs entry declarations and export and import paperwork are required. UK government introduced a staged approach to the introduction of full regulations for goods coming from the EU into the UK, but the EU has not. A Trade and Cooperation Agreement was approved late in December 2020, which enables goods that meet origin rules to be traded without import tariffs. The session includes:
- What changed and how do we meet the requirements of the new customs regulations?
- What difference does the Trade and Cooperation Agreement make?
- Review of your delivery terms, are ExWorks and DDP problematic?
- Are you ready for customs entries at export?
- Import into the UK – how does the staged approach work?
- Origin Rules – What are they, why do they matter and how can I find out if my products comply?
- GB-Northern Ireland trade – what in practical terms will we have to do?
Who should attend?
Everyone who currently trades with the EU27 Members, whether this is with sales, purchases, or just
physically moving goods. This seminar will remove misunderstanding and look at the practical impact of the end of the Transitional Arrangement. The following are examples of the type of company personnel who need to keep up to date:
- Newcomers to export or people only involved occasionally with exports
- Shipping department, warehouse staff who have only traded with the EU
- Export administrators and managers who have had no formal training in international trade and customs procedures
- Buyers, purchasing and procurement staff who need to understand key issues to bring goods into the UK from the EU27
- Sales and Customer service administrators who need to understand what they are contracting
- Freight forwarders and clearing agents who may be asked by their clients to make this important legal decision when entering goods to customs
- Ensure compliance with customs regulations
- increase your understanding of customs rules
- Provide you with clear guidelines on how to find out what information and documents are required
- Give you the skill to put compliant systems in place within your organisation
- Identify the importance of the export entry declarations and how to read them
