Importing can 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 in-depth advanced course will go into detail on compliance with customs duty relief schemes, customs compliance and payment methods.
