Since the start of January 2021, when you export goods to any country from the UK, you need to submit a Customs Declaration.

For businesses that have previously only traded with the EU, this will be a new factor to get used to. Completing a Customs Declaration can be complicated, you may need to obtain certain software to do so and your staff will have to be trained in what to do.

Our Customs Declarations training will highlight what you need to know to be able to accurately complete a simple Customs Declaration.

Who should attend? This course will be helpful for anyone who needs an understanding of Customs regimes and how to complete a Customs Declaration form.

What will I learn?Our training covers the following:

  • What is a Customs Declaration?
  • Why is a customs declaration needed?
  • What information is required to complete a declaration?
  • How to complete both an import & an export declaration.
  • HS Codes.
  • CPC Codes.
  • Valuation, Duties & Taxes.
  • Common errors

The training will also touch on Duty Deferment A/c’s and Postponed Vat accounting.

What will I take away?There is no formal exam at the end of the course. However, delegates will get to complete simulated forms to ensure they can complete simple Customs Declarations correctly.

UK based companies can access grant funding for this course.
