Since 1st January 2021 and our departure from the EU, businesses have needed training and advice to assist with international trade and customs processes, management of customs declarations, and other aspects of importing/exporting. These include: product classification, rules of origin, VAT and duty, working with transporters, and management of documentation.
If your business qualifies for the SME Brexit Support Funding we can provide the training and consultancy your business needs. We have the following options available:
Individual Trade Expert Training courses for you and your staff.
Our core suite of Trade Expert training courses are designed to cover the essential aspects of import and exporting. Topical training courses are added when the need arises, such as during the Transition.
A selection of these courses are part of the BCC Accredited Training programme and successful candidates will receive the BCC Foundation Award in International Trade.
