Overview

Are you an importer/exporter or a customs agent? Or does your company use customs agents and intermediaries to help you trade with the EU?

If so, you need to know how to meet customs requirements fast and efficiently after the UK leaves the EU. There will be new processes to follow and new forms to complete.

We can help.

Our new one-day training course will highlight what you need to know to complete customs declarations accurately and efficiently for both import and export of goods, including taking you through step-by-step guidance on completing the SAD C88 form.

Part two of the training will detail many of the common pitfalls and makes attendees aware of some of the mistakes made by newcomers to customs declarations.

In summary, the training will build basic understanding so that attendees:

  • Understand how to compile a basic import / export entry
  • Know where to seek additional information 
  • Feel more confident in their level of knowledge
  • Know what additional training and / or resources they may need in order to increase their knowledge
  • Are less likely to make mistakes, thereby saving themselves and their organisation time and money

You will be given access to our 3 hour online training, which should be completed prior to attending the training so that the face-to-face session can build on your initial knowledge.
