Prepare for new customs declarations and controls applicable to goods flowing between the EU and the UK post EU transition.

On the 1st January 2021 the UK will officially become a ‘third country’ in the eyes of the EU and beyond. Goods exported from the UK to the EU and imported into the UK from the EU will require a customs declaration and be subject to controls. Checks by customs officers will be subject to licence requirements and goods will, generally, be subject to payment of duties and VAT when, and where, they are brought into the UK. Control inspections may also be required by other UK agencies, these include: DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), Forestry Commission, Home Office (HO), DCMS (Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport), and APHA (Animal and Plant Health Agency).

It is essential that companies understand the future changes in import and export documentation so that they can take steps to prepare and avoid costly mistakes and delays post EU transition. Join Andrea Collins of The Export Department for this webinar where she will be covering some of the key areas that companies need to be aware of, including but not limited to:

  • Explanation of key import and export documentation
  • An understanding of UK customs procedures
  • What documents can be used as proof of export from the UK
  • An overview of required licensing and certification
  • UK Global Tariff - Product classification and commodity codes
  • Certificates of Origin (Non-Preference and Preference)
  • Compliance with Rules of Origin
