An Introduction to Importing including Special Procedures

This one day workshop will review and discuss the process from making enquiry to receipt of goods. Often we do not have a clear understanding of what is involved in reaching “landed cost of a product” and whether or not we are paying the correct amount of duty or any other charges for that matter. How can we apply “Special Procedures” to give us the best advantage for our businesses rather than paying out Duty and VAT needlessly. What are “Special Procedures” and how do they work?

This course clarifies all of the mist that surrounds imports and can potentially save businesses money in the long run.

• Definition of an Import & Process Flow
• Making the Enquiry – Incoterms ® 2010
