Customs Procedures, Preference & Rules of Origin

Book your place


The course will consider the impact of the latest UK customs procedures as they have evolved under the Union Customs Code for both importers and exporters. It will outline the duties and taxes currently payable on entry of goods into the UK and the bases of calculation, and also the need to produce a proof of removal for VAT reconciliation.

The course will also briefly consider some of the duty relief regimes currently available. International traders must be aware of the need for accurate customs entries and we will look at the critical information required, including Commodity, Tariff and Customs Procedure Codes.

There will be a detailed examination of the current preference and non-preferential rules of origin, and their implications for importers and exporters. A brief consideration will be given to the benefits of customs compliance.

The courses will benefit exporting and importing staff, sales, purchasing, finance, shipping and banking personnel
