Oakland sets out plans for last Brexit seminar

Birmingham, UK: Oakland International is holding the last in a series of Brexit seminars in October.

The event, hosted jointly by Oakland International and Oakland Invicta, will take place at The Crowne Plaza, NEC, Birmingham on Wednesday 17th October 2018.

The seminar will focus on transit and how existing border arrangements today could be extended for EU-UK-EU trade.

Oakland’s Robert Hardy, a career-long Customs specialist and a registered expert with the EU Commission on matters relating to international trade, said: “There is a great deal of scaremongering going on that appears to be politically motivated rather than based on pragmatism, knowledge or ground-level experience, ranging from huge delays to huge tariffs, or both! The UK exports more to non-EU than within the EU, furthermore the non-EU element is growing, consistently, year on year.

“Today, 140K traders create 50 million Customs declarations per annum. Post Brexit this is expected to grow by 200 million declarations and expose 140K additional importers/exporters to customs formalities for the first time. It is very possible to embed Customs processes within your day-to-day business, but you need to accept change and adapt. If you do nothing, nothing will happen!”
