The UK left the European Union on 31st January 2020.  

The Transition Period ends on 31st December 2021 at which point new rules apply to every movement of goods between the EU and the UK. 

This is a ‘must have’ course for anyone who imports goods from the EU or simply receives goods from the EU.  

Our customs and international trade expert practitioner will lead you through the HMRC new regulations which are being implemented in three stages, without bombarding you with technical terms and legal jargon, answering your questions on the spot.

This half day course will show you in easy to understand descriptions and diagrams

  • what the new rules are on 1st January, 1st April and 1st July 2021
  • what you have to do in practical terms for each stage
  • HMRC record keeping requirements
  • how to complete a customs declaration (customs entry)
  • finding the tariff code (commodity code), customs value, origin and CPC codes
  • how to work with a freight agent / freight forwarder/courier
  • your legal obligations
  • your legal liabilities
  • how much import duty and import VAT will you have to pay under the UK Global Tariff (UKGT)?
  • how to pay import duty and import VAT
  • options for avoiding or delaying the payment of import duty such as Customs Warehousing, Inward Processing Relief etc.
  • necessary contractual changes to purchase agreements
  • which Incoterms®2020 to avoid and which to use (Ex Works, FCA, CIP, DAP, DDP etc.)
  • the implications for you as a customer
  • the implications for your EU supplier


Even if the UK signs a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the EU the changes described will still take place.   There is not a ‘no change’ option and an FTA will not make any difference to these rules.

New rules and changed procedures don’t have to have unpleasant and unexpected consequences you may even be able to use the rules to your advantage!

No previous experience of importing is required.

What’s included:

A full slide pack is provided for future reference.  All delegates receive a Certificate of Attendance for their training records.

The course runs from 1.30pm to approx. 4pm.
