NEW UK Border Controls – What it means for your business

Event Details

++OPEN TO ALL BUSINESSES THAT IMPORT AND EXPORT++

If your company trades goods anywhere in the world, new border controls that start when the EU Transition period ends will mean that you MUST prepare NOW for change.

Liam Smyth, Director of Trade Facilitation will provide insight and comment on the new UK Border Operating Model, advise on the actions you need to engage in now, signpost funding for trader readiness and comment on prospects for future trade.
New Border Controls - 1st January 2021

Change is inevitable as we will leave the single market, trade agreements we have now may be lost and others won, and our border and customs arrangements will be different from the way they operate today.

Whether you have previously prepared for no deal or not, the environment for traders has changed and recent announcements from Government mean change is more certain than ever. So if you import or export, there's just 24 weeks to get ready for new systems and processes critical to your business.

Liam Smyth, Director of Trade Facilitation at the British Chambers of Commerce is a customs and trade expert, member of HMRC Joint Customs Consultative Committee, participates in a number of Government Expert trade Advisory Groups and represents British Chambers at the International Chambers Certificate of Origin Council. He is also a Director of Chamber Customs, a customs brokering service operated by Chambers of Commerce.

Liam will provide insight and comment on the new UK Border Operating Model, advise on the actions you need to engage in now, signpost funding for trader readiness and comment on prospects for future trade.

The webinar is FREE for all businesses that import and export.

The British Chambers of Commerce South West are famous for their support of export growth across the region. Collaboration and connectivity are major strengths and coming together to deliver this Customs Declarations Webinar for our business communities is absolutely the right thing to do. In January we will exit the EU, those who import or export will face a different world, the classic statement of "fail to prepare, prepare to fail" rings true.

This is a join event between Dorset Chamber, Devon & Plymouth, Cornwall Chambers and Business West.

Once you have booked your place, you will receive Zoom booking information to enable you to join this webinar.
