How to Complete Export Customs Entries:
A One Day Practical Workshop:

Completing export customs entry declarations is an important task and it is essential that both the freight company (intermediaries) and the exporting businesses are aware of the information required to complete a legal declaration.  With the UK leaving the EU, and some concern over there being a no-deal exit in March 2019, it is more important than ever that businesses are aware of what is required to prepare for the potential increase in the number of export customs declarations needed.

Developed for anyone learning to do export customs declarations or to provide information to agents for them to complete the declarations.  Delegates will learn about the roles and regulations, what are the tariff rules for completing export entries, the most important pieces of information, how to complete the entries compliantly and check that they are correct. The delegate will leave the course able to complete a simple export entry and with the information to progress in this area.

This course is delivered by our specialist export partner Strong and Herd LLP, widely respected consultants in all areas of international trade.  They deliver factual legislative training courses and produce numerous import and export guides / bibles.
