Customs procedures are designed to manage and regulate the movement of goods through our borders. Compliance with these procedures requires the submission of accurate documentation. An importer or exporter is ultimately accountable for the completion of customs documentation even though the responsibility may be delegated to agents, freight forwarder or parcels operators.
The trader therefore needs to be aware of the detail requirements for completion and HMRC expect traders to have robust procedures for the checking of the documentation. Traders that can demonstrate compliance with these requirements have the option to apply for a trusted trader status that will reward them with access to fast – track and more economic border procedures.
This seminar is designed to give an overview of these procedures and the documentary requirements to satisfy them. It is suitable for staff from both small and larger companies involved in shipping/dispatch, sales and customer service staff, finance and accounts staff, junior and senior management and trainees at all levelsSeminar Objectives
