Brexit workshop next week

Inside Business

An upcoming workshop organised by Local Enterprise Office Wicklow which aims to enable companies to understand both Revenue rules in Ireland and HMRC rules in the UK.

Are you planning to move goods to, from or through the UK after Brexit? You can prepare your business for customs at this free of charge one-day interactive workshop been held at Wicklow County Campus, Rathnew, on Wednesday, June 26.

This workshop is open to businesses from all sectors, and will cover areas such as what export and import procedures apply, how tariffs work and how to correctly classify goods.

Irrespective of the sector a business is operating in, it will experience some form of impact from Brexit. Some of the issues faced from a Customs and Trade perspective are customs duty, import VAT, border delays, additional costs such e.g. clearance agents, additional documentation e.g. import and export documentation, new procedures e.g. how and when to lodge import and export SADs, new licenses.

Different issues will impact on each sector in a slightly different way. For example, the food industry will be conscious of how customs duty and border delays might impact on their product, the construction industry will be acutely aware of the knock on impact of border delays on their deadlines, the textiles will be impacted by high duty rates and IT companies may have to consider Export Controls.

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

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