Brexit Customs Training

14 January 2019

As we move towards the end of negotiations, it is clear from the reports from Brussels and the UK that we are in a very concerning situation with a high risk of a Hard/No-deal Brexit happening on March 29th almost by virtue of the fact that time is running out to agree a deal.

The most important question you need to ask yourself right now is:

Do you move goods across Ireland, Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom? If so, then you need to be prepared. Customs will affect you and your business model.

Be proactive and get ready, BDO will be running a session every week from now until the end of March so that you can familiarise yourself with the basics of Customs and what you need to do to be ready.

This is a 2-hour session, which by the end of the session, you will have an action plan in place for what your business will need to do and level of comfort that you will be in a good starting place in the event of a Hard/No-deal Brexit by March 29th.

Topics will include:

  • Customs – An Explanation
  • Understanding customs and its impact on your supply chain
  • Understanding typical Customs terminology
  • Export Process and Import Process
  • Import / Export SAD – how to complete
  • How to draft a Customs Procedure
