Brexit work­shop to take place next week

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

AN up­com­ing work­shop or­gan­ised by Lo­cal En­ter­prise Of­fice Wick­low which aims to en­able com­pa­nies to un­der­stand both Rev­enue rules in Ire­land and HMRC rules in the UK.

Are you plan­ning to move goods to, from or through the UK af­ter Brexit? You can pre­pare your busi­ness for cus­toms at this free of charge one-day interactiv­e work­shop been held at Wick­low County Cam­pus, Rath­new, on Wed­nes­day, June 26.

This 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.

Ir­re­spec­tive of the sec­tor a busi­ness is op­er­at­ing in, it will ex­pe­ri­ence some form of im­pact from Brexit. Some of the is­sues faced from a Cus­toms and Trade per­spec­tive are cus­toms duty, im­port VAT, bor­der de­lays, ad­di­tional costs such e.g. clear­ance agents, ad­di­tional doc­u­men­ta­tion e.g. im­port and ex­port doc­u­men­ta­tion, new pro­ce­dures e.g. how and when to lodge im­port and ex­port SADs, new li­censes.

Dif­fer­ent is­sues will im­pact on each sec­tor in a slightly dif­fer­ent way. For ex­am­ple, the food in­dus­try will be con­scious of how cus­toms duty and bor­der de­lays might im­pact on their prod­uct, the con­struc­tion in­dus­try will be acutely aware of the knock on im­pact of bor­der de­lays on their dead­lines, the tex­tiles will be im­pacted by high duty rates and IT com­pa­nies may have to con­sider Ex­port Con­trols.

Ul­ti­mately Im­porters and Ex­porters will need to know how to move their goods through Cus­toms in Ire­land and the UK post Brexit.

The course will also cover the post Brexit sim­pli­fi­ca­tions be­ing in­tro­duced by both Au­thor­i­ties and how to ap­ply for th­ese.
