Inward Processing Relief May 2018
Inward Processing Relief
Inward Processing Relief (IPR) is used to obtain relief from customs duty and import VAT on goods that are imported from outside the EU for processing and subsequent re export out of the EU. The basic principle is to allow UK exporters to be more competitive by reducing their processing costs. Processes that are permitted under IPR include manufacturing, sorting and packing, repair and refurbishment.
Organisations must be authorised to use IPR and Customs impose strict obligations to comply with the IPR procedures, which are perceived to be onerous and deter many from using IPR despite the potential benefits.
This half day training course will examine the principles and terminology of IPR and some of the alternative available. It will look at the options available within IPR, the methods of operation and compliance with Customs requirements.
International trade is a very complex subject with many different terms, procedures and regulations. Training is essential to successful trading overseas.
