FULL CONTENT

Part 1 Introduction by Jessica Yang
The course starts with a short, animated video, on an Ireland-based small business run by George, alias ‘George's business’ during the course. It shows some considerations George's business has when preparing to import into the EU for the first time. We use George's business to help you contextualise what you will learn. 

Afterwards, Jessica sets 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 will start with a quick recap on the Brexit timeline. It will then summarise 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 will show 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 is 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
Here, we will address practical issues presented from both the EU and the UK side. You 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 is 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 from 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.

Baltic Master case in the CJEU: once again about related persons and the use of customs valuation IS
31-07-2022

On 13.06.2022, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued a decision in the Baltic Master case (C-599/20) on two relatively unrelated issues. The first, whether customs must establish an objective legal relationship between the buyer and the seller in order to consider them as related persons. The second, whether customs can rely on the value of a single comparable transaction found on the national customs valuation information system (IS), denying the acceptance of the declared value of the goods (air conditioning units). In this article, we discuss interpretations provided by the CJEU; and we look forward for the national verdict of the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania (SACL).

CJEU guidelines on the selection of identical or similar goods for determining the customs value
20-07-2022

Customs administration shall exercise due care in analysing the facts, gathering information and evidence for the use of each of the alternative methods for determining the customs value. This includes the duty of the customs authorities to consult all the information sources and databases available to them. Are customs authorities obliged to check information systems maintained by the EU? May identical or similar imports (which have not been challenged) of the same trader be excluded? What is the period, in which identical or similar imports are considered to be ‘made at the same or around the same time’? We look at the CJEU's answers to these questions.

Mission possible: how the WTO Valuation Agreement strikes a balance between trade facilitation and customs regulation
17-07-2022

Customs valuation is one of the largest challenges in international trade. That is why the rules of customs valuation are set out in an international treaty. On the one hand, this is aimed at harmonizing the valuation rules, while on the other hand, it is aimed at protecting economic operators from the arbitrariness of the authorities and, ultimately, at helping traders. Does it really work in practice, and does it serve both public and private interests in international trade? In the article, the peculiarities of customs valuation are highlighted, which are especially important to consider for those who deal with developing and least-developed countries.

Some common questions about the HS, and how to change it to meet needs
01-07-2022

Good trade-related policy requires good trade data. While it may occasionally be necessary to implement policies and trade measures without a data-driven understanding of the underlying trade, there is always the risk that doing so could deliver unpredictable results or miss the desired objectives. Good trade data is also essential for monitoring and assessing the implementation of trade policies.
