Irish VAT, UK VAT & Customs Webinar with RBK and SwiftFile

  Tue, 02/03/2021
  8:30  –  9:30

Since 1 January 2021, all goods passing between Great Britain and Ireland need to pass through customs checks. There is new paperwork and other issues to consider such as the need for inspections and potential customs duty charges depending on the origin of the goods. Deciding which of the parties to the transaction will be responsible for importation also leads to complex VAT issues.

Join RBK Chartered Accountants, together with UK Accountants, Bishop Fleming and customs clearance experts, SwiftFile on Tuesday, 2nd March as we share practical insights and provide guidance in relation to Irish VAT, UK VAT and Customs considerations.  

Who should attend?  
This webinar is of interest to businesses involved in goods transactions between the UK and Ireland, including goods moving to and from Northern Ireland.
