The workshop, which is an initiative of the Government of Ireland being delivered by Local Enterprise Office Galway, will help businesses understand all elements of dealing with the UK as a “third country” outside of the EU single market.  This includes administration around imports and export, customs formalities at borders, tariffs and the possible knock on effect of these tariffs and import procedures such as Electronic Declaration process and Automated Entry Processing.


The 'Prepare Your Business for Customs' workshops are just one strand of the supports that the Local Enterprise Offices have supplied to their clients on behalf of Government across the country since Brexit was announced in 2016. 


This includes scorecards from Enterprise Ireland to evaluate exposure, financial support to trade online, Brexit loans, grants to support exporting into new markets and LEAN programmes to increase company performance, competitiveness and resilience.
