Brexit Capacity Building
Customs tools & courses – survival kit

With Brexit on the horizon, it is important to understand the customs procedures required for trading goods between mainland Europe and the UK. For many years this has involved the simple transportation of goods from one country to another, but things are about to change. In future customs will treat such sales as imports and exports and you will be expected to comply with the associated legal requirements and procedures. A good understanding of Customs processes will be key to the success of your business and its bottom-line. Get started today!

KGH’s Customs and Trade Academy offers a wide-range of quality (online) training courses and tools to help traders boost their customs competence. To this end, we have a strategic partnership with the Centre for Customs and Excise Studies (CCES) at Charles Sturt University in Australia, which is widely recognised as the world’s leading academic institute in the highly specialised area of customs and cross-border regulation. The CCES is accredited by the World Customs Organization.
