This introduction course is aimed at those involved in the administration of international trade to ensure an
understanding of rules of origin, product classification and item valuation to meet the demands of international
trade in both exporting and importing. Understanding origin, tariffs and valuation is essential for correct
calculation of taxation and duties, and mistakes leading to non-payment or underpayment are considered a
serious matter by HMRC. They also lead to duty reliefs, so getting this right could save you money.
• Preference and Non-Preference Origin
• The rules determining preference rules of origin
• Understanding tariff codes
• Correctly classifying goods with examples
• Import Valuation
• Sources of help and advice
Who Should Attend:

Mistakes in this area can be costly and serious so companies must ensure they have the knowledge to manage this
properly in their organisations. The course is valuable for both newcomers wanting an introduction and overview,
and experienced staff needing a refresher on current requirements.
The trainer will use oral and visual presentation, reference to fictitious and real examples and participatory exercises to illustrate course content. The delegates will receive copies of the presentation on which notes can be made together with a workbook for future reference.
