A special Brexit event is being held for Donegal businesses who export and import to and from the UK.
The Donegal Local Enterprise Office is running a one-day interactive workshop on preparing local businesses for customs after Brexit.
The workshop will deal with issues such as moving goods to, from or through the UK after Brexit and will explore the potential impacts, formalities and procedures businesses will need to adopt when trading with a country which is outside the Single Market and Custom Unions.
The event is taking place next Wednesday, March 27 at Radisson Blu, Paddy Harte Road, Letterkenny from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
The workshop is open to businesses from all sectors and will cover areas such as what export and import procedures apply, how tariffs work and how to correctly classify goods.
This workshop is funded by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland and is delivered by BDO Ireland on behalf of the Local Enterprise Offices.
The aim of the event is to help Irish businesses understand the administration process around import and export procedures, customs formalities at the borders, the Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) process, tariffs and cost implication of tariffs, import procedures, such as the electronic declaration process and automated entry processing (AEP).
