The specialised programmes

The International Trade programme

Four standard courses are available, collectively providing a thorough introduction to international trade. Other, more specialised, programmes go into specific detail on targeted topics. Many customers find that the full standard range of courses can meet their needs entirely.

Others prefer to 'mix and match', selecting topics from various courses to allow us to tailor something that meets their specific requirement. If that's for you, just send us your "wish-list" and we'll build you the perfect programme.

We love catering for both these situations!

So here's a summary of what you may wish to choose from.

  1. New course! Incoterms 2010 - half-day

    Incoterms: the January 2011 revision. Do you know your FOBs from your CIPs?? (Many traders who have long been involved in the export/import game would be hard-put to answer that question!) And what about the new DATs or DAPs?? Using the latest revision of Incoterms, this course explains the critical importance of the event of delivery in an international sale of goods contract, linking the passing of risk of damage from seller to buyer and determining the buyer's obligation to pay. You can put yourself ahead of the game by understanding the mechanics of the internationally-applied definitions found in the International Chamber of Commerce's latest publication, Incoterms 2010.

  2. Understanding Intrastat - half-day

    Submitting correct statistics to HM Customs is a necessary evil in the international trader's life. This duty is generally handed over to an appointed freight forwarder when goods are moved beyond the EC. But movements within the EC are generally recorded and submitted to Customs by companies themselves. This course explains the Intrastat system simply, outlining your company's legal obligations and how to meet them.

  3. Understanding origin - 1-day

    The origin of the goods you handle becomes a key question when exporting. Why? It's because of politics, or preferences - this course outlines how to deal with the vital issues of origin, examining both the political and preferential trading reasons. The different rules of origin and the appropriate documentation are explored in detail.

  4. Introduction to importing - 1-day

    Overseas sourcing provides one solution to rising prices on the domestic market. It is then essential to be able to cost for the total distribution, set up a sound deal, and to be confident about the inward clearance procedures on arrival. Good liaison with your clearing agent will mean optimum clearance speed at the lowest cost. We try to provide a template for good import practice on this course.

  5. Import and export awareness - 1-day

    Sometimes you need a wide-ranging overview of the whole import/export spectrum. This course attempts to provide such a picture, covering the broad sweep of procedures, systems, payment options and contracts.

  6. The advantages & obligations of a Customs Warehouse - 1-day

    Customs warehousing can provide an elegant solution to the need to find large sums of duty and tax when goods first arrive for import. The benefits are particularly great when the imported goods are subsequently exported. This course explores the benefits of the various types of customs warehouse available to traders here and gives an outline for their good management.

  7. Advanced Letter of Credit Workshop - 1-day

    Practice makes perfect with letters of credit. This course was written in response to delegates' requests for more after they had attended the introduction to L/Cs course. Great emphasis is placed on how best to use the current governing rules (the International Chamber of Commerce publication no 600 'Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits').

  8. Inward Processing Relief - 1-day

    When companies start to track the flow of raw materials and finished goods through their supply chain they may get some surprises - duty and tax payments may be easily avoided, and it's all legal! One of the potent ways of avoiding paying duty and tax is to take advantage of the duty relief scheme known as Inward Processing Relief - IPR. On this course we look at the detail of how to operate this scheme effectively in your company. Our challenge is to try to save your company much more than the cost of the course!
