Understanding Commodity Codes (pm) - FULL

Date April 04, 2019 Location Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce
Understanding Commodity Codes (pm) - FULL

The international system for coding products for customs purposes when we trade internationally is generally regarded as complex and difficult to understand. The penalties for wrongly assigning a code to a product could be severe and relying on a freight forwarder’s judgement does not release the producer or shipper from responsibility for accurately describing the goods.

This course guides people through the process and its paperwork steadily and methodically so that everyone can arrive at an accurate HS code for their product with confidence and peace of mind.

Course Programme

The Tariff Document – organisation and layout

Using the Tariff

Finding your product

Applying the correct code

Errors and omissions on your documentation

The HMRC helpline

Course Outcome: At the end of this “hands-on” course – with many coding exercises – candidates leave with a solid experience of coding a variety of products, including their own range and can approach further HS coding challenges with complete confidence.

Who should attend: The course is designed for anyone in the organisation who makes a contribution to a correct customs description of internationally traded goods. It is also applicable to management staff whose role requires supervision or checking of sensitive declaration descriptions.
