UK - EU Separation - Impact on Exports

Host: D2N2 Growth Hub

Location: Online - Webinar

Date: Thursday, 11th 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.

Are you currently selling goods/components to overseas markets?  Are these EU or third country transactions?  Do you understand the difference and how familiar are you with terminology such as commodity codes, export licencing and controls, certificates of origin and proof of export?

At the end of the transition period with Europe in December all goods sold to Europe will have to go through a customs clearance process – which brings additional legal responsibilities for the exporter.   Companies may not be familiar with customs procedures – many in fact rely on their freight forwarders.  Do you understand how this will potentially impact on costs, process, training and resource in your business?  Are you prepared?

This webinar will review the export process and highlight the key areas that businesses should be considering as they prepare for the UK’s new relationship with Europe.
