Classroom: £329 +VAT per person
AEO is an accreditation scheme that can provide many international trade simplifications and benefits to importers and exporters. To achieve AEO status there is a lengthy process that UK companies must go through with HMRC. This rigorous process is widely regarded as beneficial for companies that trade internationally, even if they decide not to finalise their registration.
The aim of this one-day course is to help you understand the AEO requirements and benefits that can be gained in achieving AEO status. It will guide you through the application process and enable you to help your organisation achieve and crucially, maintain AEO status. The course will also highlight the pitfalls that companies typically experience and explain how to avoid delays and mistakes.
Should the UK end up outside the EU Customs Union following the Brexit negotiations, UK importers and exporters should consider applying for AEO status.
All people responsible for managing and administrating your international supply chains including people from your import, export, finance, logistics and legal teams, and those who will be responsible for compliance with the scheme.
