Virtual INCOTERMS® 2020 Training

Wednesday 10th February 2021
9:30am - 1:15pm

Government funding for this course could be available to you through the Customs Grant Schemes
This is a BCC Accredited Course and marks go towards the Foundation in International Trade.

The terms you previously used for your EU sales could bring you complications and you might want to re-examine your terms.  Ex Works (EXW) or Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) have been the 'go to' terms but may not be the best fit moving forward. Using these may mean that you need to register for VAT in the foreign country.

The purpose of the course :
An overview of Incoterms 2020; understand how these International Commercial Terms affect an international movement of goods.  If you do not know your DAP from your DPU, or get confused over FOB versus FCA;  then this is the course for you.  We’ll guide you through each of the Incoterms, explaining the costs involved, and whether these should be met by the Seller or the Buyer.  We’ll identify the transfer of risk points for each of the 11 Incoterms, and clarify the issue of Insurance. We’ll explore the potential problems of EXW and DDP, and the potential problem of having multiple transactions but one international movement of goods.  

Benefits for your organisation :
Understand how to apply these International Commercial Terms to your international movements.  Appreciate the costs and risks involved when moving goods internationally, thereby avoiding disputes with your customers.
