Bespoke BDO Customs training at zero cost to your business

19 November 2019

Many businesses may not be aware that the UK government are offering grants to companies to cover customs training. BDO's dedicated Customs Duty team have recently been successful in helping a client to obtain 100% funding for training provided by us. Costs are fully covered, allowing us to offer formal training to any number of participants at zero cost for you.

The grant will provide funding for training that provides employees with skills to:

  • Complete customs declarations or other declarations required to complete customs processes in the UK or EU (such as safety and security declarations).
  • Manage customs processes and use customs software and systems.

Is your business eligible?

Businesses based in, or with a branch in, the UK can apply for the grant. Businesses need to register by 17 January 2020 to make sure you meet the application deadline. Applications will close on 31st January 2020 (or earlier if funding is fully allocated).

Training will absolutely be worthwhile regardless of the Brexit outcome - businesses must be prepared for whatever happens, but in the meantime, HMRC are undertaking a robust programme of customs audits across the UK. This training will help companies fill current knowledge gaps and be better prepared for each scenario.

Our team can assist with wording, team information biographies for your application. Training programs cover all areas of customs planning and compliance for global businesses and will be customised to fit your needs.

Don't miss this opportunity for tailored Customs training delivered by BDO at no cost to your organisation.
