Invest NI webinar summarising post-EU Exit customs and VAT rules

The next event in Invest NI’s EU Exit series will provide a recap of the post-EU Exit customs and VAT rules. Following the presentations, you will have the opportunity to ask questions. The webinar will take place at 10:00 on 12 May 2021.

Throughout the remainder of the day, participants can meet business advisors in up to three specialist areas for free consultations on their business needs. These sessions will take place from 11:00-16:00

As a result of the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, many businesses are now preparing to re-open for the first time since December 2020. This webinar, delivered by VAT and Customs experts from PWC, is designed to help these businesses adapt to the Northern Ireland Protocol and the post-EU Exit trading environment.

Businesses seeking a refresh of the key changes brought about by EU Exit will also find this session useful.

As well as providing a recap of the key changes, you will also hear about the actions you can take to minimise the impact on changes to trade, from both a Customs and VAT perspective.

The webinar will include:

  • overview of the customs and VAT implications post EU Exit
  • roundup of common issues
  • the ‘at risk’ test, the UK Trader Scheme and apportionment
  • information required in Trader Support Service declarations
  • tariff waivers and possible reimbursement of duties
  • use of XI VAT and EORI numbers

Following the presentation representatives from PWC will answer your questions.
