A few words from our tutor on what you can expect from this course

Course Description

This one day course will cover the essential rules on moving goods and services across international boundaries, post-Brexit. We will discuss the new implications for sellers and traders, will clarify important VAT and customs duties issues, where the exceptions lie, and how to complete the VAT return. We will look at new critical areas such as postponed VAT accounting and where it applies, trading under the new EU e-commerce directive, and important administrative requirements you need to be aware of.

If you are unsure of your obligations regarding trading, VAT and customs post-Brexit, this course can prove invaluable. You will gain insights from an experienced professional, get the chance to ask questions specific to your business, and will receive a full course pack to refer back to.

Q & A

This course will be of benefit to accountants and other professionals who must deal with, or advise on, VAT aspects of cross-border transactions. Since the UK has left the EU, they will also need to recognise that Customs Duties are much more important, so they will also benefit from an update on Customs Duties and how they interact with VAT.
