Are you ready for Brexit and trading with the EU?

Dorset Chamber has partnered with some of the leading industry experts to launch brand new Customs Declarations Training, designed to prepare businesses and trade professionals for the future of trade.

The way we trade with the EU is about to change, introducing the need for forms and processes not previously required. Up-skilled people are the key to continued trading success once the UK leaves the EU.

The Customs Declarations Training programme delivers flexible, bite-sized e-learning modules, classroom courses, and virtual classroom sessions.

Made possible through the HM Treasury and HMRC’s investment in training provision in this area, the training is aimed at increasing capacity of the sector ahead of March 2019.

HMRC is encouraging readiness, stating that

“Businesses should now begin to look at the guidance for importing and exporting outside of the EU to familiarise themselves with the key processes.”

To help with the costs associated with preparing for EU-exit, the Government is offering grants covering up to 50-70% of the cost of training your employees.

“The approach of continuity does not mean that everything will stay the same. At the heart of government’s approach to preparing for a ‘no deal’ scenario is a commitment to prioritise stability for citizens, consumers and business,” HRMC states

Closing date for grant applications is 5 April 2019. Ensure you enrol now to be eligible for this funding. Click here to find out more, enrol to the programme and get ready for the new world of trade. See their latest training and events here.
