Preparing for Brexit

Trading with Northern Ireland

No matter what type of industry a business is in everyone will experience some form of impact from Brexit.  Some of the issues that will be faced are from a Customs and Trade perspective are:

  • Customs Duty
  • Import VAT
  • Border Delays
  • Additional Costs e.g. Clearance Agents, etc.
  • Additional Documentation e.g. Import and Export Documentation, etc.
  • New Procedures e.g. How and when to lodge import and export SADs, etc.
  • New Licenses

Ultimately, Importers and Exporters will need to know how to move their goods through Customs in Ireland and the UK post Brexit.

Our course will enable companies to understand both Revenue rules in Ireland and HMRC rules in the UK.

We will also cover the post Brexit simplifications being introduced by both Authorities and how to apply for these.

We will also explain the operational requirements necessary to move goods through Customs.
