Course description: This course covers the new rules and procedures that have been introduced when submitting customs declarations now that the UK has left the EU. A customs declaration is a form that must be submitted to UK customs that enables goods to be imported and exported. It is vitally important that importers and exporters understand the information required to be submitted to customs, as in most cases it is the importer and exporter who would be liable for this information, even if it is done by a third party.
