Export Preference Training Workshop – Understanding how export preference can benefit your business

Can my business benefit from Export Preference?

If your business exports goods to a nation with which the UK is part of a preferential trade agreement, you may be able to obtain reduced or Nil customs Duty rates in respect of any materials or components used in the manufacturing process that have been sourced from within the UK or the EU. This enables UK and EU businesses to be more competitive with other third countries.


What will the workshop cover?

  • The general principles of the regime
  • The benefits of preferential trade
  • Meeting origin requirements
  • Documentation to enable preferential exports
  • Obtaining the right evidence to support goods movement


What will I get from it?

  • An explanation of the process of preferential trading
  • A greater understanding of the requirements and regulations associated with an EU Approved Exporter Authorisation
  • An understanding of the consequences of non-compliance
  • Experience from working through some practical examples which help you to understand the origin rules
  • Knowing how to get the right information you need to get it right in the future


Who it is aimed at?

This workshop will provide significant useful knowledge to business owners either new to exporting or experienced, senior management teams and any third parties who are involved in the export of goods. Agents who are also tasked with the mandatory financial or organisational responsibilities of a business would also benefit.


Delivered by
John Griffiths, HMRC International Trade Development Liaison Officer (ITDLO)
