Online Customs Training

Custran provides the best customs software training online and a full customs training service for all you customs needs.

Brexit has brought significant changes to trading in and out of the UK. Traders who previously never had to create and submit customs declarations are now struggling with making entries and with understanding customs procedures. This has forced many traders to start employing customs agents which has led to increased costs and staff work hours dealing with getting information correctly sent to agents and betting required paperwork completed. Furthermore exchanging data over telephones, emails, faxes, etc. and not understanding exactly what is needed has led to delays at ports due to incorrect or inaccurate declarations. This can result in major disruption to both business and customers.

There is an alternative however. Traders can bring the making of customs declarations in-house by training their staff on how to effectively complete a customs declaration and how to submit entries correctly.

Custran can provide this customs training and can provide the software in which the declarations are made for both Irish and UK entries.
