    Industries classified as services now contribute more to the UK economy than any other industry. Service exports make up about a quarter of UK international trade. However, the majority of UK service providers find it difficult to export their service.

    If you want to export services, much of your approach will be the same as if you were exporting tangible goods. Thorough research and a clear understanding of the local culture is a crucial part of entering a new market. But there are also some important differences.

    This one day course addresses the issues of exporting services, highlighting legal, operational and commercial implications and why it is so important to understand these processes to help develop a successful and profitable global business.

    An Introduction to Importing

    £360.00

    Suppliers around the world offer a wide variety of goods that might suit your business. You might be able to find lower-priced supplies, giving you a competitive edge, or new supplies that allow you to sell a completely different product. Just as when you buy within the UK, it's important to find good suppliers, make sure they offer what you want and negotiate the right deal. 

    Importing can also present complications, such as managing long-distance relationships and organising international transport and customs clearance. Common pitfalls can cause importers to incur unnecessary costs and delays in arrival of goods. Successful importing requires an understanding of customs rules and procedures as well as the duty and excise relief available.

    This one-day seminar will offer practical guidance to prospective and existing importers by considering the basic procedures, terminology and documentation involved in importing. It will give an overview of the entire importing process including supplier selection, evaluation of risks, supply chain, terms of delivery, methods of payment, selection of clearing agent, duty and excise and the role of UK customs.

    Trade statistics show that the European Union is the destination for about half of all British goods exports.

The task to reach a new trade agreement with the European Union following the "Brexit "vote will be complex.

    This one day workshop will look at the impact of the "Brexit" on your existing exports and imports immediately and longer term and where to go from here to spread your risks.

    NOTE: This workshop can also be delivered in-house at your company’s own premises - contact us for details.
