How Rules of Origin affect your business to trade to, from or through the UK

The discussion will cover the issues that exporters and importers face and the implications of the movement of EU and third country originated goods post-Brexit. Guest speaker, Carol Lynch, Partner at BDO and customs & trade specialist, will discuss some solutions that can possibly help to resolve the current challenges. The webinar will be hosted by Newstalk presenter and contributor, Jonathan Healy.

About Rules of Origin:

Rules of Origin determine where goods originate i.e., not where they have been shipped from, but where they have been produced or manufactured. As such, the ‘origin’ is the ‘economic nationality’ of goods traded. The tariff classification, value and origin of a good are determining factors based on which the customs tariff treatment is applied. Rules of Origin form an integral part of the trade and cooperation agreement (TCA) between the EU and UK.
