The purpose of the course
This course provides an in-depth exploration into the procedures and documentation you will need to be aware of if your business is to make a success of exporting. The spotlight will be on the many varied documents required in international trade, highlighting which ones are important, and why. We’ll ensure you feel confident about your quotations and together we’ll follow the trail of the actions for you to take so you can become an ‘expert exporter’. We’ll help you identify which documents to raise, which modes of transport to use, and where to go for advice and assistance. We’ll cover why it is important that you retain a clear audit trail, together with specific documentary evidence, in order to meet export compliance. We shall also make brief reference to the customs law (the Union Customs Code), and how this affects EU trade and exports out of the EU. We’ll make you aware of the new customs computer; Customs Declaration Service (CDS). We shall discuss Brexit, and how that may impact on your international trade.
