The end of the Brexit Transition Period is fast approaching. From 01 January 2021, there will be customs controls on the movement of products between Ireland and the UK. This is the dawning of a new trading reality with our biggest trading partner and businesses need to ensure they are prepared for this new reality.

There are steps that businesses can and should take now to prepare for the new trading reality. The economic fallout of Covid-19 has already had a negative impact on businesses, so it is critical that companies prepare for the changes at the end of this year.

Who should attend this training course?
This half day training course is designed to give companies an overview of the steps they should be taking to prepare for 01 January 2021. SME’s, manufacturing companies, agri-food companies, pharmaceutical companies, retail companies distribution companies and logistics companies need to ensure they have the requisite knowledge to deal with the new challenges they will face, to ensure customs clearance operates as efficiently as possible, ensure that they are ready for the new compliance obligations and can identify cost saving opportunities that will help them create a competitive advantage and optimise their customs duty/import VAT costs.

 Update on the current status of Brexit – understanding the current status of Brexit negotiations and the practical implications on your business
 Customs clearance and trading with the UK – making sure you have the required registrations, authorization and mechanisms in place to continue to trade between Ireland and the UK and through the UK to the rest of the EU.
 Incoterms and understanding your risks and responsibilities – understanding your obligations in the supply chain from a customs perspective. This will include an overview of the following areas:
 Customs Compliance Basics – understanding what new information points you will need to include on your paperwork to comply with customs controls and allow for customs clearance

 Customs Economic Procedures and optimizing your customs costs – understand what opportunities are available for your business to reduce and mitigate customs duty costs through the use of customs special economic regimes
