What every Importer needs to know – prepare for 1st January 2022

Event Details

Full customs controls and checks will commence on 1 January 2022 for goods entering GB from the EU –  Make sure your business is ready!

Importing processes have changed since the UK’s departure from the EU and the Government have been introducing these in Stages, giving businesses time to adjust.

From the 1st January 2022 full Import Customs Declarations will be mandatory and will no longer be delayed. Any Import declarations delayed before this time must still have a Supplementary declaration raised within 175 days of the import. 

You can complete these declarations or use an agent BUT even if using an agent, the legal responsibility for accuracy of the information included falls to the importer. It is therefore vital that importers are aware of their procedural and financial obligations and have the records needed.

As an importer you need to review –

– Do you have processes in place for import declarations?

– If they are taken care of by your transporters, have you verified that they have taken place correctly and ensured the right duty and VAT charges have been made?

– Are you familiar with Postponed VAT Accounting and have you viewed your online statement? Some transporters are assuming importers are using this scheme but traders may be unaware.

Be part of this webinar where our experts will explain the issues that you need to understand and show you how to deal with them.

Date:   Friday 3rd December 2021 10.00am – 11.00am 

Cost to attend: £10 + VAT  Members and £20 + VAT Non-Members

There will also be time to answer your questions on these topics.
