Customs 2021… Post Transition

11th November 2020, 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Event Navigation

The UK left the EU on the 31 January 2020. From 1 January 2021, the way you trade with the EU will change, and you will need to be ready to comply with new customs arrangements. New rules will take effect on 1 January 2021.

This is the fourth in our series of workshops that will help you prepare for the upcoming changes and offer an insight to the help we can provide at the Chamber. The workshops are completely free of charge.

The event will again be split into two parts

Part 1, for new joiners, from 09.00 – 10.00 a.m. will cover:

  • Customs declarations (export and import)
  • Customs Duties
  • U.K. Global tariff
  • VAT (imports)
  • Safety and Security declarations
  • Actions to take

Part 2, for those who have attended previous sessions, from 10.00 – 11.00 a.m.:

This month we will also be looking at arrangements in the Republic of Ireland in partnership with our colleagues from the British Irish Chamber of Commerce in Dublin, whose Director General John McGrane will join us together with his colleagues David O’Reilly, Aileen Duffy and Ellen Kehoe, to give the audience an overview of the trading relationship between Ireland and the UK, what steps his members are taking to prepare for 1 January 2021 and how UK companies can interact more with Irish customers and counterparts and use new platforms such as kmend to connect to the right specialists, find new customers and generate new business.  John will be joined by Cormac Fitzgerald FCPA, Managing Director of Fitzgerald & Partners, a leading Irish professional services firm based in Cork, for additional insights and comments during the session.

We will update you on the changes in the Border Operating Model announced in October.

We will also look at the ISPM15 regulations in regard to pallets and wooden packaging
