Online Training – Trade Preference, Agreements and Origin Rules

Book your place

The rate of duty payable depends on the type of goods, whether you are importing or exporting, where the goods are deemed to have come from - the 'originating' country - and their destination.

Trading with international markets can make a significant contribution to the bottom line of any business and understanding preference agreements will support this aim. International trade under preference allows you to import and/or export goods at a lower or nil rate of customs duty.

• Understanding the difference between preference and non-preference origin
• Clarification of the rule books
• What are the preference documents?
• Examples of the rules for a change of tariff, percentage and textiles
• Claiming preference on import
• How to complete and request a supplier declaration
• How to become an approved exporter and simplified procedures (e.g. Korea)

On completion of the session delegates will be emailed a full set of all the slides plus informative notes.

A post session assessment can be completed to counts towards the British Chambers of Commerce National Trade Training programme mapped to Level 2 NVQ terminology.
