Wednesday 17 March 2021 (2.5 hours) 9am – 11.30am
- Export Documentation and Procedures
- Costing for Export
- Guest speaker: Hear from an established exporter about how they manage the document process
About this workshop:
Today’s workshop will cover the following documents:
- Documents required by Australian Authorities
- Transport Documents
- Specialist Documents
- Commercial Documents
- Documents required by Importing Countries
This component of the course is intensive, so provides plenty of examples and recommendations on what is required.
Just as important is costing for export, so we will break this down to cover the many costs incurred, best practice to ensure correct quotation moving forward plus definitions, costs associated and things to consider – this workshop also provides a practical exercise to encourage knowledge retention.
And finally, we have invited an experience exporter to join us and discuss what advice they can provide when it comes to managing the document process and mistakes to look out for in your business. There will be plenty of time for questions and don’t forget to bring along any documents that are relevant to your business!
