This unique course is intended to provide the often-missing link for finance specialists to the world of international goods movement and how the issues and unexpected costs they see on a daily basis, are inadvertently created.
This much-acclaimed course provides that ‘light bulb’ moment for finance professionals, stripping away the confusion, technical jargon and conflicting objectives to show a clear path to business improvement and greater profitability.
Many companies optimise their inter-company transfer charging for corporation tax but are completely unaware of the impact this will have on the valuation for customs purposes with its link to import duty and tax payable at the border. Likewise the seemingly simple choice of an importer or exporter can lead to the need for businesses to register a multitude of new companies around the world to manage their tax affairs.
The course is given from an integrated, pragmatic and practical viewpoint rather than an academic and theoretical one. The emphasis is on shining a light on the supply chain to explain how seemingly unconnected elements interact to produce cause and effect. Once understood it is entirely possible to avoid difficulties and delays and achieve cost efficiency across the business disciplines involved.
