Customs for Beginners
Annika Deinerth

A company that operates internationally will inevitably come into contact with customs issues. In order to optimise the company's customs clearance processes and avoid economic risks, it is essential that employees in the customs department have a sound basic knowledge. Employees in functions that are not directly "customs related" should also have a certain level of fundamental understanding. Raising the awareness of employees in so-called "interface positions" can help overcome challenges related to customs clearance before problems arise due to non-compliance or even fines. However, experience shows that in practice new colleagues are often trained "on the fly"! Our introductory seminar provides up-to-date essential customs knowledge. Practical tips and case studies are also included.
