Tools Of The Trade - Develop your International Trade Toolkit

Host: D2N2 Growth Hub

Location: Online - Webinar

Date: Thursday, 4th June 2020 at 10.00am - 12.00pm

Cost: FREE

This webinar is hosted by the D2N2 Growth Hub, East Midlands Chamber and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Whilst COVID-19 understandably dominates world headlines, behind the scenes, the UK continues to prepare for the end of the EU-UK transition period. The message from government is that businesses must be prepared. 

Have you considered taking this opportunity to develop your international trade ‘toolkit’? What, if any, processes do you have in the business when buying from and selling abroad?  How confident are you on commodity codes, duties, taxes, licencing and documentary requirements for import and export? Do you understand the company’s legal obligations behind all these? 

This webinar offers importers and exporters the opportunity to enhance their understanding of key themes whilst exploring and learning to navigate a selection of new and existing online platforms which are essential reference tools as we move towards our new trading relationship with Europe.
