The ‘International Trade and Brexit Seminar’ will aim to address the issues and challenges that Black Country companies may face or are facing in this current global trade environment.

As we near the Brexit date, we can expect both the Home Office and HMRC to provide some answers and guidance as to what companies may be able to do to maintain efficiency and effectiveness in trade. This is a very rare opportunity in the Black Country for companies to hear directly from, and to put their concerns and questions squarely to the Home Office, on issues such as the government’s Settlement Scheme and EU migrant workforce, and to HMRC, on issues such as global trade, tariffs, VAT, and the new Customs Declaration Service (CDS).

Businesses will also be guided by experts in Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status and its accreditation process, Market Selection & Research, applying for Approved Exporter Status authorisation, and an update on ChamberCustoms, as the Chambers prepare to take on Customs Declaration Service (CDS) and assist HMRC in the move from CHIEF to CDS.

All of these issues will become more relevant to businesses as we near the March 29th Brexit date, and we hope that by attending this event businesses will find answers, reassurances and the confidence that their business operations will continue smoothly post-Brexit, as we assist them to be prepared.
