ABOUT THE COURSE

This is a crash course on customs that will help you to build a solid understanding of customs principles and how they work in practice in the EU-UK trade. It is a key ingredient for small and medium-sized businesses planning trading activities in 2022 and beyond, and it is also an excellent base for training those with little customs experience. 

The course was developed by an international team of experienced trainers who deal with customs in the EU and the UK as consultants, lawyers, customs officials and customs brokers.

CONTENT

Part 1 Introduction by Jessica Yang
You will start the course by watching a short, animated video featuring a small business based in Ireland (the owner's name is George, so throughout the course, we call it "George's business"). The video will take you through some considerations the business has when preparing to import into the EU for the first time. This business case will be used throughout the course to help you contextualise what you will learn. 

Then the course coordinator Jessica Yang will introduce you to the course, take you through what you can expect to learn in each part of the course, set the scene to help you place the course in the context of day-to-day business activities. 

Part 2 Authorisations and registrations by Anthony Buckley
You will learn about various customs registrations as well as authorisations that are relevant to businesses trading in the EU. You will learn about general topics that are relevant to all EU businesses, such as how to work with customs brokers and express carriers. Given the course’s focus on the practical implications of Brexit, this part will provide specific details on Irish and UK registrations. 

Part 3 Tariff classification by Eglė Pučkuvienė
You will learn about what classification is, why commodity codes are important and how to allocate commodity codes to the goods you import/export. 

Part 4 Customs valuation by Monika Bielskienė
You will learn about what customs valuation is, why it matters as well as how to determine the customs valuation of the goods you import/export. 

Part 5 Non-preferential and preferential origin by Jessica Yang and Enrika Naujokė
You will learn about what origin is, why it matters as well as how to determine the preferential as well as non-preferential origin of the goods you import/export. 

Part 6 Classification, valuation and origin from the UK’s perspective by Jessica Yang
This part starts with a quick recap on the Brexit timeline. It then summaries the key differences in classification, valuation and origin rules between the EU and the UK. This part is relevant to EU businesses too, as it shows what their UK customers and suppliers are dealing with. Understanding classification, valuation and origin from the UK’s perspective will help EU businesses work better with their UK suppliers and customers. 

Part 7 Customs debt by Monika Bielskienė
Customs debt will be defined in this session. This part will be of interest to the finance department of EU businesses, as it relates to the payment of customs duties. You will learn about when the debt occurs, how it is calculated, and how it is paid. 

Part 8 Practical implications of Brexit and the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement by Anthony Buckley and Jessica Yang
This part addressing practical issues will be presented from both the EU and the UK side. You will learn about the most common practical challenges facing businesses today and what they are doing to tackle them. The EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement will be discussed in this session. 

Part 9 Customs declarations – UK by Toby Spink
Making customs declarations is a vital step in trading across borders. You will learn about the UK’s customs declaration systems to better understand what it takes to make a customs declaration in the UK, and how the process differs to making a customs declaration in an EU Member State. 

Part 10 Customs declarations – EU, using Ireland as an example, by Anthony Buckley  
Finally, this part of the course will illustrate how customs declarations are made in the EU, using Ireland as an example.

UK and EU hauliers: get ready for GVMS 2022
23-11-2021

Brexit for EU and UK hauliers transporting goods in and out of the UK will really begin on January 1st 2022. Up until now goods imported or exported to and from the UK may have moved through the ports in some cases without the correct customs declarations. This was due to the lack of UK preparedness around Brexit as a whole. The Goods Vehicle Movement System (GVMS) will ensure this practice stops.
