On the 31st December the Transition period will end. Customs processes will be required for all EU trade. If you have only imported from the EU you will need to understand the processes required in order to import your goods successfully.

The purpose of the course :
Completing Customs Declarations for imports can be one of the biggest challenges, join us to understand what information is needed to be able to complete one successfully – whether you are considering doing this yourself – or using a Customs Intermediary / Freight Agent / Customs Broker.  We will also discuss why it is important that you retain a clear audit trail in order to meet Import Compliance, make you aware of the changes on the horizon in 2021 – including exiting the transition period and speak about the Customs Declaration Service and what will this mean for your Imports.
