Customs Training

Designed to suit your business

VARTAN offers a range of Customs training packages for both imports and exports.

Customs systems evolve and change, and it is essential that businesses understand the detail of submitting declarations.

Our training courses provide a detailed look at the current systems and entry of the information required.

VARTAN’s Customs training courses can be tailored to suit the needs of any business.

This could be from a very basic introduction to Customs procedures – ideal for a company who are currently only dealing with the EU and could be faced with having to do Customs entries for the first time in the post-Brexit environment.  Perhaps you have new members of staff but no resources or expertise to fully train them.

More advanced training may be required if you want to up-skill staff currently involved in third-country imports, by introducing alternative Customs procedures that could help to reduce your tax and duty burden.

Our training covers the following areas:

• Customs role in international trade

• Customs terminology and definitions

• Invoices and documentation

• Researching Customs procedures and correspondence

• The Customs tariff

• Classification of goods

• Incoterms and Customs valuation

• Customs warehousing

• Import and export Customs procedure codes

• Import licensing and tariff quotas

• Preferential rates of duty

• Rules of Origin

• Auditing of Customs Entries

• Post Clearance Amendments

• Customs Declaration Service (CDS)

How VARTAN can help you

Our team is so passionate about customs compliance and helping businesses avoid the risk of hefty fines as well as discovering duty reclaim opportunities, that we’ve been offering FREE Customs Audits. We’ve had some real successes; overpayments getting repaid and potential fines avoided for incomplete and incorrect entries.

You don’t know what you don’t know!

No judgement here, but we see so often businesses with ‘blind spots’. Their in-house method of training customs clearances without expert knowledge of penalties or changes in legislation leaves them open to making costly mistakes over many years, potentially risking thousands of pounds in fines or overpayments.

⭐️ FREE Customs Audit ⭐️– what’s involved?
It’s a business no-brainer and you’ve got nothing to lose. Even if you’re pretty sure you’re spot-on with your entries, it’s reassuring to make sure, right?

Here’s how it works. Our expert customs consultants will audit a sample of your customs entries and provide you with a traffic-light report to show their findings. You’ll get to see what you’re doing right, what’s questionable and what, quite frankly, is incorrect.

What’s next?

It’s as easy as contacting us and booking your audit, places are limited so be quick!

We also offer a selection of Customs training packages through our online training platform.

If you need help, would like to take advantage of our free audit or just need a discussion to understand your options and how our training could help your business, then please get in touch.
