CUSTOMS SERIES 1 - CUSTOMS COMPLIANCE AND HOW TO SURVIVE A CUSTOMS AUDIT


Many traders fail to meet the obligations imposed by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), often believing the freight forwarder is responsible for meeting those demands. HMRC requires that full records are kept for all import and export transactions - failure to comply can lead to serious and costly repercussions. This workshop highlights the key concepts that minimise expenses and ensure compliance. It will also present the reasons behind HMRC audits, clarify what your roles and responsibilities are as an importer and prepare you for a customs audit.

NETWORKING TRAINING: HOW TO WORK A ROOM


Hate the thought of networking? Want to learn how to network on your own terms?

Walking into a room full of strangers can be daunting for most people - even 'seasoned' networkers! For many people, the fear of networking at events stops them attending or has them standing at the edge of the room not knowing what to do and therefore missing out on expanding their number of business contacts and raising their profile and the profile of their business.

Our 'how to work a room' surgery aims to remove some of these barriers to networking by providing some focus for attending events, examining the 'risks' involved, as well as how to reduce and manage them and improving confidence with some practical tools and tips.

Workshop leader Heather White, Networking Architect, Smarter Networking
At London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, 33 Queen Street, London EC4R 1AP
Time 5.45pm - 8.30pm
