The Donegal Local Enterprise Office is running a one day interactive workshop on preparing your business for Customs.
The workshop comes as EU leaders granted a request from British Prime Minister Theresa May to delay Brexit. The two-tier extension depends on whether Mrs May gets the Withdrawal Agreement through parliament next week. If she does, Article 50 will be extended until 22 May. If not, the UK faces a new hard deadline of April 12th.
Ahead of this, Donegal businesses who are planning on moving goods to, from or through the UK after Brexit are invited to a workshop to prepare for Brexit.
If the UK leaves the Customs Union and Single Market, it will become a ‘Third Country’ for customs purposes.
Local businesses are being advised to learn about the potential impacts, formalities and procedures they will need to adopt when trading with a country which is outside the Single Market and Custom Unions (a ‘Third Country’).
This LEO workshop is open to businesses from all sectors and will cover areas such as what export and import procedures apply, how tariffs work and how to correctly classify goods.
This workshop is fully funded by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland and is delivered by BDO Ireland on behalf of the Local Enterprise Offices.
The aim of this workshop is to help Irish businesses understand:-
- The administration process around import and export procedures
- Custom formalities at borders
- The Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) process
- Tariffs and cost implication of tariffs
- Import procedures, such as the Electronic Declaration Process and Automated Entry Processing (AEP)
