Export Webinar: Border Model and complexities of trade with NI (24 March)

01 Mar 2021

The Export Department (with associated partners) is holding is FREE webinar on 24 March 2021 to discuss the Border Model and complexities of trade with Northern Ireland (NI).

This one-hour (10-11am) webinar is designed for companies engaged in trade with the EU, who have been grappling with the various documentation, processes, and systems, across all UK Government departments, which are now in operation at the borders of Great Britain. This has significant impacts on the flow of goods into and out of GB.

Andrea will interpret the new Border Operating Model, together with the various obligations involved in trading with Northern Ireland. She will highlight the practical implications for companies affected by the protocol, and how companies, particularly SMEs, can adapt.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Import and export declarations and supporting documentation
  • Treatment of certain goods categories: standard, controlled, additional requirements
  • Tariffs, Origin and Claiming origin
  • Accounting for VAT and duty, easing cashflow
  • Customs Simplified Procedures
  • GB-NI declarations and documentation
  • Goods ‘at risk’
