Classification of Goods (Virtual)

23rd September @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

£264 – £348

Time: 13:30 – 16:30

The correct classification of goods using commodity and tariff codes is fundamental for customs compliance, establishing correct duty rates, origin of goods, intrastat, export control, security and many other customs procedures. Using the most appropriate code is the legal obligation of the trader, and should not be delegated to other parties or agents.

HMRC expect traders to establish codes by using through a reasoned in house documented process. An objective of this seminar is to provide organisations with the necessary resources to demonstrate compliance with this requirement

We will consider the terminology used and the structure of the Harmonised System, Commodity and Tariff codes. It will examine the General Interpretative Rules that are used for classification and the tools and resources available to assist in the establishment of the most appropriate code.

It will also consider the difference between coding systems in use in other countries and how different codes can be correlated
