Essex Chambers of Commerce launch ‘Customs Advice Service’

August 21, 2017

Essex Chambers of Commerce are delighted to announce that Five Lanes Consultancy Limited have agreed to work with the Chamber in providing our new ‘Chamber Customs Advice Service’.
 
The team at Five Lanes Consultancy Limited have more than 80 years combined experience in this field and can support international trading companies in all matters relating to customs activities. They specialise in looking at Companies current processes and procedures to firstly ensure they are operating in a compliant way, secondly to ensure they are as efficient as can be and lastly, but most importantly to the customers, their customs costs are as low as possible.
 
Kris Wilson, Manager of International Trade at Essex Chambers of Commerce, said, “We are extremely pleased to have Five Lanes Consultancy Limited on board to advise and assist our customers with their Customs issues. We are fully aware of the struggle Companies face in getting even the simplest answer from HMRC at times, so having someone on hand will be a big bonus for our exporters. This is especially true for Members who will receive nominal advice for free, plus 15% off any additional consultancy fees.”
 
With the uncertainty surrounding BREXIT and the varied scenarios surrounding trading in the EU, Five Lanes Consultancy Limited can also help Companies understand the possible ramifications and assist in preparations which include becoming ‘Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) ready’.
 
Founder and Director of Five Lanes Consultancy Limited, Howard Levene said “We are in a time of uncertainty, but what we do know is, we are going to be faced with change. Importers and Exporters should be fully aware of their obligations to be compliant with todays’ customs requirements and duty minimisation opportunities that are available to them today, so that the change, whatever it is, as a result of Brexit, will be as painless and simple in a way that ensures they continue to trade internationally as cost effectively as possible".
