Irish Revenue have highlighted major concerns regarding data quality on Customs declarations. Penalties have now been introduced in Section 54 of the Finance Act 2011, where declarants who make incorrect returns may be liable to penalties. Failure to make correct declarations can also bring closer the possibility of Customs audits.


  • This one day course provides the Exporting, Importing or Logistics Company with a clear understanding of the Customs Clearance Process. Companies will be guided in devising practical procedures and assessment processes to avoid infringements of the Customs Regulations.

Who Should Attend:

Whether you complete returns or rely on your forwarding agents to complete returns, the Principal Company is the party liable (except in certain defined circumstances). To avoid the risk of infringements of the EU Customs Code, proper monitoring of returns has now become essential. This course is a must for those operational and supervisory personnel needing to become familiar with Clearance returns requirements.
