Customs Procedures and Compliance in International Trade
Event Venue and Description – Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, Albion House, Saville Street, Sheffield
International Trade is the exchange of goods and services between countries, irrespective of whether or not border controls exist. In today’s economic climate, many companies are involved in both the import and export of components and finished products and therefore subject to the scrutiny of HMRC and adherence to customs regulations in one form or another.
Is your company customs compliant? All too often companies are unaware of the array of customs notices and procedures that apply to their business transactions. Unless staff receive adequate training, their first encounter with officialdom is often goods delayed in transit or a customs audit. The cost on non-compliance can be high, whether this be demurrage charges at port, civil penalties or the repayment of understated duties.
This is an interactive course with group discussion and practical exercises, giving delegates an overview of the role of HMRC and customs procedures and how these relate to imports and exports.
