Brexit and Covid-19 have demonstrated the significance of international trade to the UK economy. What opportunities are there for your business in the ‘new economy’?
The workshop focuses on exports, rather than imports, outlining the whole process, including the export documents required.
We explain why letters of credit are important, discussing the roles of the parties, clarifying the procedures, and recommending practical ways in which exporters can adopt best practice to ensure payment every time.
The session then looks at how you can leverage trade instruments to win export contracts, SMART exporting, and credit referencing.
A discussion on the value of importing then highlights the importance of finding good suppliers, making sure they offer what you want and negotiating the right deal.
Although our focus is on exports, we do consider the terminology, procedures, and documentation that faces importers.
This includes a look at supplier selection, risk evaluation, supply chain, delivery terms, payment methods, clearing agents, and our responsibilities to HMRC.
The workshop ends by looking at next steps and where to get to help.
