Chartered Accountants Ireland launches new Brexit customs course

Sep 11, 2019

The courses will be run in Belfast, Derry, Dublin and Newry starting on 30 September

Chartered Accountants Ireland, in association with the Irish Exporters Association, today (11 September) launches a brand new continuous professional development (CPD) course - Brexit Customs Level 1 and 2. Starting on 30 September 2019, the course is designed to support the increasing demand for customs expertise in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, regardless of the outcome of Brexit.

This is the latest initiative by Chartered Accountants Ireland to help businesses prepare for dealing with customs compliance and skill up in this area in the event of a no-deal Brexit. Businesses should be using the time between now and 31 October to improve their knowledge of customs procedures, and close any gaps in their knowledge that could prevent them from trading outside their domestic market.

This course provides participants with insights into how to manage their dealings with EU/International customs efficiently and explores areas such as goods classification, origin, valuation and transit. Brexit Customs Level 1 and 2 will run in the morning and evening respectively, and participants can book either the morning, or afternoon session, or both. Courses are being run in Belfast, Derry, Dublin and Newry.

Director, Members at Chartered Accountants Ireland, Mr. Brendan O’Hora commented “We are delighted to launch this course in response to calls from our members to address the increasing need for customs expertise as a further support to businesses of all sizes in preparing for Brexit. We would encourage our members and business professionals dealing with customs compliance to book onto one of these sessions to get the essential information that they will need to know before the UK leaves the EU”.

This course is suitable for accountants, and other business professionals, who have limited knowledge of customs. Attendees can be working in practice, finance, procurement, supply chain, operations or freight forwarding. No previous experience or knowledge of customs is required. Interested parties can visit the CPD programmes page of our website to learn more and register for the course.
