Online Customs training to help prepare for Brexit

Jan 03, 2019

Heather Humphreys TD, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, and Pat Breen TD, Minister for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection launched the Customs Insights course, which is being rolled out by the Government through Enterprise Ireland. This is a new online training support to help all businesses understand how customs works including the documentation and processes required to operate and succeed post Brexit.

In the event of a hard Brexit, goods moving into and out of the UK would be under customs controls and would require customs documentations. For Irish companies selling into the UK, or importing from the UK, they may for the first time be required to deal with the various systems associated with customs. The Customs Insights course explains in clear and simple terms the main customs rules and includes the key actions companies can take to prepare for customs after Brexit and the options from Revenue that are available to make the customs process more efficient.

Open to all businesses on, the free online Customs Insights course takes 45 minutes to complete and covers both importing and exporting procedures.
