Customs Tariff Classification                                                                           Duration: 1 Day
                                                                                                                                       Tutor Profile

The tariff classification of items determines how much import duty is payable.   A vital part of any international transaction as the import duty is frequently far greater than the freight costs.

Far too often the choice of tariff code is simply left to chance.   Sometimes the importer is lucky and the person he/she is relying on actually knows what they are doing, has all the relevant information and has the time to assess it but more often than not the choice is made in moments based on a one line goods description by someone who has little idea of what is really involved.

It is little wonder then that exporters and importers receive nasty financial surprises that ruin any hoped for profit margin.


The tutor draws on their extensive experience across many industry sectors to provide this practical course explaining in detail with examples, the method, options, benefits and implications of tariff code selection.

This course is designed for those new to customs tariff classification and for those needing a greater understanding of the use and implications of classification globally.   The course will cover how and why an item should be classified for import, export or EU trade statistical purposes.

 
It will include information on how to classify items including those of mixed materials, unfinished and incomplete items and those sold in sets.  


Interpretation, dispute management, Binding Tariff rulings, benefits and challenges will all be covered in a clear and practical presentation.


The relationship of tariff classification to obtaining the benefit of Free Trade Agreements will also be explained.


Attendees will gain the information ad skills required to allow them to classify goods and to understand the implications and benefits of classification to aid duty management, tax efficiency and cost effective purchasing and sales.

 
Attendees will also learn the legal implications of the use of incorrect tariff codes and how a lack of attention to this area is a cause for concern for those seeking or those who have already attained AEO status.

 
This course is suitable for those at all levels of management, operations and administration in Procurement, Sourcing, Finance, Customer Services, Retail, Sales, Shipping, Airfreight, Freight Agents, Personal Effects Shippers, Logistics, Supply Chain and Import or Export administration.  The course is equally suitable for those engaged in large and small businesses.

This course may be taken as a standalone course or as part of our Achieving AEO Programme.
