The importance of understanding and correctly completing export documentation is crucial for any business trading internationally. The delay of getting the goods to your customer seriously effects your reputation and the increased costs have an influence on your profit margins. The country or customer requirements need to be recognised before an order is accepted, as some form of documentation will be required even if you sell on an ex works basis. HM Revenue and Customs will require evidence of removal and the mandatory obligations are not to be ignored even if the procedure is outsourced.

This course provides an in-depth look at export processes and requirements, giving delegates a more-detailed view of the exporting processes. Commencing with the initial enquiry, moving through the contractual and legislative requirements, and concluding with securing payment, this course delivers an end-to-end guide to exporting.

  • Establishing the contract and the importance of Incoterms®
