This introduction workshop is aimed at those involved in the importing of goods. The workshop will cover import documentation and procedures, commercial considerations, the importance of your purchase order, calculating VAT and duty, the three main import duty drivers and how to reduce import customs clearance delays. Incoterms and their impact on importing will be shown, along with an introduction to duty regimes to help importers.
