A Quick Guide To Trading With The EU Countries, For Companies New To International Trade (KICC)

Event Details

Date: 3rd February 2021
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Chaired by Export and Importing expert Graham Card, Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce, we will discuss a quick guide to trading with the EU countries for companies new to international trade.

As a result of Brexit on 31 January 2020 and particularly the end of the EU transition period on 31 December 2020, many traders have become importers and/or exporters for the first time. This is because trade with any of the EU 27 was previously treated as a home market transaction.

This webinar is aimed at demystifying import and export traders’ responsibilities by using straightforward explanations and layman’s language. We will cover how the new Brexit deal has shaped our trading relationship with the EU, and how things are happening in practice.

We will also discuss,

  • The joint responsibilities of exporter and importer in any transaction.
  • Achieving the correct tariff classification and obtaining binding decisions in cases that are not clear.
  • Becoming aware of collection and arrival procedures.

To wrap up we will look at other aspects of trade that may not immediately be obvious.
