Huge demand for Brexit workshops
FOLLOWING a hugely
successful workshop on helping businesses in Donegal
get Brexit ready by helping them prepare for

a further two workshops on Prepare your Business for
Customs - Getting Brexit Ready over the coming
The feedback on the first workshop held in March was
very positive, with 30 local businesses engaged on
the six steps to prepare their business for Customs
after Brexit and because demand has been so high,
further events are now scheduled for Tuesday 16
April in Letterkenny and Thursday 9 May in Solis
Lough Eske, Donegal.
Interested Inishowen businesses
are asked to
book online or call 074 91 60735
Businesses in Inishowen
who are planning on moving goods to, from or through
the UK after Brexit are being urged to prepare by
attending the one day interactive workshop, but with
demand for the limited places, very high – they are
being asked to make sure they book in good time.
Local Enterprise Office, Donegal, have stressed that
the workshop is open to businesses from all sectors.
"If the UK leaves the Customs Union and Single
Market, it will become a 'Third Country' for customs
purposes. At this workshop businesses can learn
about the potential impacts, formalities and
procedures you will need to adopt when trading with
a country which is outside the Single Market and
Custom Unions (a 'Third Country')," Head of
Enterprise in Donegal, Michael Tunney said.
He added "It will cover areas such as what export
and import procedures apply, how tariffs work and
how to correctly classify goods."
This workshop is open to businesses from all sectors
and the aim is to help Donegal businesses
• The Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) process
• The Administration process around import and
• Custom formalities at borders
• Tariffs and cost implication of tariffs
• Import procedures, such as the Electronic
• Automated Entry Processing (AEP)
Places are booking up fast, so interested Inishowen
businesses are asked to
book online or call 074 91 60735.
