Customs Training Funding Available - Get Prepared

Is your business ready to trade at the end of the transition period? Are you a customs agent? Does your company use customs agents and intermediaries to help you trade with the EU? 

If so, you need to understand how to meet customs requirements fast and efficiently after the end of the transition period. There will be a number of new forms to complete and procedures to follow, we can help you prepare with one of our training courses. The Government has extended funding for Customs Training grants until January 31st 2021, which can be used to cover 100% of the cost of training employees (up to a limit of £2,250 per trainee). This is a limited pot so to avoid disappointment make sure you apply today! 

Companies involved in trade as importers or exporters are eligible to apply for the training grant even if you use a third party to complete your declarations. You can apply here.

Julie Austin, International Trade Manager, says "Training staff is important for any company and being able to obtain a grant is ideal to assist businesses in facilitating this to help prepare for life after the transition period."

Use the funding against the following courses taking place at Norfolk Chambers of Commerce's office:-

Customs Declaration Training - this course will highlight what you need to know to complete customs declarations accurately and efficiently for both imports and exports. We are running courses later in the year which will be released soon.

Import Procedures - This full day course will explain import documentation and gives knowledge of the key elements of important procedues, including where to go for sources of information and assistance. We have courses taking place on 4 March 2020 and 14 October 2020
