Trade Training on Trend (At last...)

Trade fulfilment has never been as popular as it is right now. As the UK negotiates the terms of it’s exit from the EU, topics such as customs declarations, origin and incoterms are being talked about widely across social media. In these times of uncertainty, many businesses are taking measures to improve their resilience. While certain steps can be difficult to justify until the UK’s exit from the EU becomes clearer, one area businesses are looking at with fresh eyes is the area of training.

ATA Carnets – (Multicoloured) Passport for Goods

The recent publication of a number of notices designed to help UK businesses prepare for a no deal exit from the EU has reinvigorated discussion on the practicalities for movements of goods. With 25 notices published and 50+ to come, one item among many still to be addressed concerns temporary importations. At present, a UK individual or entity can take goods and/or equipment into other member states without the need to declare. This post looks at ATA Carnets, the passport for goods.

Brexit – No Deal Preparation Guidance from HM Government

The government has begun publishing a series of notices designed to inform UK businesses and citizens of the implications of a no deal exit from the EU. 25 papers have been published to date, covering a wide range of topics, including import/export, medicines, export of controlled goods and labelling. A number will be added throughout the coming weeks, with approximately 80 expected in total, designed to cover all areas.

Customs Declaration Service – Roll Out Begins

As outlined in previous posts, Customs Declaration Service (CDS) is a huge project being led by HMRC which will be used by any business that sends or receives goods internationally. The replacement of CHIEF (Customs Handling of Import/Export Freight), which is the system HMRC has been using for import and export declarations since the 1990’s, CDS is the mechanism through which traders will inform HMRC of incoming and outgoing movements of physical materials.
