Why you might need help

The world of customs is undergoing a quiet, largely unpublicized revolution.  Completely new customs regulations will apply in the EU from May 2016 based on electronic submissions and risk based assessments.   Everyone who imports or exports will need to make changes to existing processes and IT systems and to understand the significant financial impact of the new regulations.

Traders, both large and small will have to cope with security assessments, risk based inspections, centralized processing and combined compliance audits as well as all the usual legal requirements for correct documentation, classification etc.  Under the new regulations failure to send in a form on time can make a trader liable for a fine.

It is therefore becoming not only helpful but essential to link physical and fiscal processes.  

Levels of knowledge and professionalism amongst those who daily deal with importing or exporting goods need to expand to meet the new environment and to ensure overall compliance for their companies.

New Standards such as AEO take a holistic view of organisations leaving no area of a business untouched by their requirements.  Not only are informed and knowledgeable employees essential to a prosperous, efficient and effective business in this new environment but the ability to demonstrate appropriate levels of skill and technical knowledge is now required.
