Exporting Essentials – Customs Declarations and Duties

Customs formalities are a major part of international trade; any goods which leave, enter or pass through a country will be subject to customs clearance procedures.

Though the UK is currently in a customs union as part of the EU, this may not be the case for much longer. Should the UK leave the customs union, the customs requirements for businesses selling into Europe will increase significantly.

In this 1 hour webinar we cover the essentials of customs declarations and duties to help you to ensure that you can export and import without unexpected costs or delays.

On the panel are Arne Mielken from Amber Road and David Macmillan from Bollore Logistics. They cover:

– the potential impact on your business of not being compliant
– how to use tariff codes to find out what duties apply
– how ‘Country of Origin’ rules work
– how a logistics company can help you stay on top of it all

Open to Export webinars are powered by the Institute of Export & International Trade – the UK’s only professional body representing international trade.
