The 2-day course is designed to teach delegates about HMRC regimes and how to implement these correctly. You will also develop an understanding of the role HMRC play in managing the import process, the implications this has on you as an importer and the requirements from you in order to efficiently move goods into the EU.
Attending this course will help you understand the responsibilities of an import business, which will help with implementing efficient processes, prevention of complex issues arising in the future and avoiding potential Duty/ VAT non-compliance demands from HMRC. Incoterms from the importers perspective will also be reviewed.
