UK - EU Separation: Impact on Exports

Host: D2N2 Growth Hub

Location: Online - Webinar

Date: Monday, 27th July 2020 at 10.00am - 12.00pm

Cost: FREE

This webinar is hosted by the D2N2 Growth Hub and East Midlands Chamber and funded through BEIS.

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 rely on their freight forwarders. Do you understand how this will potentially impact on costs, process, training and resource in your business and 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.

This webinar will cover:

  • The differences in terminology
    • Commodity codes
    • Export licencing and controls
    • Certificates of origin
    • Proof of export
  • Customs clearance process

  • Customs procedures

  • Impact on costs

  • Processes going forward

  • Training and resources

  • How you can prepare
